Please join us in a screening of Justin Chon’s 2021 Cannes Film Festival Nominee movie Blue Bayou—a riveting depiction of an adopted Korean-American who suddenly learns that he is not a U.S. citizen and risks losing his wife, step-daughter, and newborn daughter if he cannot successfully fight deportation back to South Korea.
Afterward please stay for a panel discussion, featuring Korean-American adoptees, their stories, and our hopes to raise awareness for the Adoptee Citizenship Act, and what you can do to help.
A light Asian-inspired dinner along with self-service beer and wine will be served. Doors open at 5pm. Movie to start at 5:45pm.
