Events & Gatherings
Minari, Lee Isaac Chung
It’s the 1980s, and David, a seven-year-old Korean American boy, is faced with new surroundings and a different way of life when his father moves their family from the West Coast to rural Arkansas. His mother, is aghast that they live in a mobile home in the middle of nowhere, and naughty little David and his sister are bored and aimless. When his equally mischievous grandmother arrives from Korea to live with them, her unfamiliar ways arouse David’s curiosity. Meanwhile, David’s dad, hell-bent on creating a farm on untapped soil, throws their finances, his marriage, and the stability of the family into jeopardy.

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 in partnership with Global Gathering Place (GGP).
GGP is a drop-in non-profit centre that provides personalized, heartfelt settlement assistance to refugees and immigrants. To achieve our vision of a society where newcomers are fully engaged and valued, GGP also partners with a wide range of organizations in Saskatoon and beyond. A welcoming home away from home, GGP acts as a cultural bridge between newcomers and life in Canada. We help refugees and immigrants navigate everything from language, healthcare, and employment, to developing life skills that many of us do without thinking (like grocery shopping and taking the bus).
This screening is free and open to the public.
