Virtual Movie Watch Party: The Farewell

Friday, May 29, 2020, 7 p.m.

Join us for a live watch party of the movie "The Farewell" on the last Friday of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Starting at 7 p.m. go to our Kanopy movie collection and have your library card ready. Find "The Farewell" and be ready to start the movie at the same time as many other D.C. residents. While watching the movie, join us on Twitter to participate in a live virtual discussion of the film using the tags #FarewellWatchParty and #AAPIHM. We will be joined by special guests from the Mayor's Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs

Please note: You only have 6 credits in Kanopy, so reserve at least one for the watch party!

About the film: In this funny, heartfelt story, Billi's (Awkwafina) family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch--the only person that doesn't know she only has a few weeks to live.
