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 community screening is presented in partnership with the Saskatchewan Intercultural Association.
Saskatchewan Intercultural Association provides programs and services that empower and relieve barriers for newcomers and Indigenous people in the areas of securing employment, language advancement, and cultural understanding. An integral part of SIA has always been to provide anti-racist education and promote intercultural understanding to the general public through workshops, programming, and community events.
This screening is free and open to the public.
