UCLA Alumni Rose Bowl Bruins and Asian Pacific Alumni of UCLA are pleased to partner with Vanderbilt University for a film screening and panel discussion about “Far East Deep South,” as part of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Directed by Larissa Lam ’97, the documentary follows the Chiu family’s search for their roots, as it takes them on an eye-opening journey through the Mississippi Delta, uncovering otherwise unknown stories and the racially complex history of Chinese immigrants in the segregated South. This Chinese American family’s unforgettable story offers a poignant and important perspective on race relations, immigration and American identity.
Guests are encouraged to watch the film on PBS World Channel or online at PBS.com, then join us for a panel discussion with the filmmakers, and professors from UCLA and Vanderbilt, to discuss the themes from the documentary.
Wednesday, May 12 | 5:45 p.m. PT

“Far East Deep South” will be available as part of the America Reframed series on PBS World Channel starting May 4 through the end of the month. For event inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
