BlacKorea is based on filmmaker Patti Kim Gill’s life, born to a Korean mother and an African-American father in Chicago, and takes an honest look at stereotypes resulting from two cultures colliding. Join us in the Tiffin Boardroom for a special Reimaginations discussion around the topic of Identity on Wednesday, February 28, 6PM-8PM. This is the first in a series of events surrounding BlacKorea and will set the tone for a film screening at Ida Noyes on Monday, March 5 at 7PM. Prior to the film we also invite you to join us in the International House Library, 5PM-6:30PM for a conversation with Patti Kim Gill herself on her experiences of growing up at this particular intersection of identity.
Sponsored by the International House Global Voices Performing Arts and Lecture Series, Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture, Center for Identity and Inlcusion, Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, and Doc Films.
