Schedule for Winter/ Spring 2019-20:
Sunday, September 8th, 5pm: Sometimes, Always, Never
Sunday, October 13th, 5pm: The Farewell
The Farewell (USA, English, Mandarin w/ English subtitles) is based on true events and follows a young Chinese American woman named Billi as she travels back to China to visit her dying grandmother. Billi’s family has decided to spare their beloved matriarch the news of her terminal diagnosis so as not to darken what time she has left. In order for everyone to have a chance to say goodbye without tipping her off that the end is near, they orchestrate an elaborate excuse to reunite in the form of a fake wedding. Little by little, we realize that this story is not only about Billi saying goodbye to her grandmother, but also about her reconnecting with a country and extended family that she left behind at a young age. The Farewell is truly remarkable. It will make you laugh out loud, cry both sad and happy tears, and contemplate the meaning of home.
