Students will screen Asian-American films to learn living history and culture with experienced elders and engage in professional networking. STEAM (science, tech, engineering, arts, math) themed films will vary per class interests and streaming availability. Asian films will have English subtitles to ease foreign language immersion. English discussions tying films to participant backgrounds enhance more exchanges between internationals and Americans.
