This May, Cinema at the Museum presents a series of films in honour of Asian Heritage Month. These films look at themes of family, identity, diaspora, and community from a wide range of Asian filmmakers. Throughout the month, there will be various community screenings presented in partnership with Saskatoon community organizations that speak to these organizations’ values and respective communities.
This screening is presented in partnership with Asian Voices YXE.
Asian Voices YXE started in 2021 as a response to the increase of violent anti-Asian hate experienced in the wake of COVID-19. The volunteer-run community organization based in Saskatoon, SK on Treaty Six Territory and the Homeland of the Métis, seeks to provide a welcoming, engaging, and supportive community for those from the Asian diaspora in its widest sense. The groups strongly stands against racism and oppression towards people of the Asian community, and more broadly against white supremacy in all its forms and expressions. Asian Voices YXE organizes community events focused on awareness, education, healing, and celebration.
This screening is free and open to the public.
