Movement: Asian/Pacific America
The Asian Culture Center and the Asian American Studies Program curate Movement: Asian/Pacific America film series as part of Indiana University’s annual Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month celebration. Movement grapples with themes of identity, belonging, and power from the perspectives of Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Asian/Pacific diasporic directors, screenwriters, actors, and subjects. The series invites audiences to consider the multifaceted vibrancies and complexities of Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Asian/Pacific diasporic individuals and communities. Movement evokes evolution and transformation—both within and beyond Asian/Pacific America. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
This series is sponsored by the Asian Culture Center, Asian American Studies Program, and IU Cinema.
