The screening will be followed by a short panel discussion featuring Professor Kathleen Kim (Loyola Law School) and Professor Edward J. W. Park (Department of Asian and Asian American Studies, LMU), as well as members of the Sung family via videoconference.

The screening and discussion will take place in the library’s Von der Ahe Family Suite (level 3). This event is co-sponsored by the LMU English department and the William H. Hannon Library.
