4:00 PM Lecture: Raising Global Families In her book Raising Global Families: Parenting, Immigration, and Class in Taiwan and the US, Pei-Chia Lan examines how ethnic Chinese parents in Taiwan and the U.S. negotiate cultural differences and class inequality to raise children in the contexts of globalization and immigration. Lan's cross-Pacific comparison demonstrates that class inequality permeates the fabric of family life, even as it takes shape in different ways across national contexts.

Pei-Chia Lan is Distinguished Professor of Sociology at National Taiwan University. She is the author of Global Cinderellas: Migrant Domestics and Newly Rich Employers in Taiwan (2006), which won the ASA Distinguished Book Award.

A reception will be held after the event.

7:00 PM 2018 San Diego Asian Film Festival Opening Night Pacific Arts Movement (Pac Arts) is thrilled to present the 19th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival (SDAFF), the largest platform of Asian cinema on the west coast, from November 8-17, 2018. In its largest iteration yet, SDAFF will present over 160 films from 20 countries in 28 languages showcasing the best in both award-winning and cutting-edge cinema from Asia, Asian America and around the world.

This year, Pac Arts is adding Asian cuisine to the movie-goer experience, partnering with local San Diego restaurants to bring food featured in the films to festival attendees before and after the opening and closing night films!

"Expanding the world of the films to include San Diego cuisine is directly tied to our mission of telling the stories of Asian Americans and connecting them with lives here," says Pac Arts Artistic Director Brian Hu.

All San Diegans are welcome to attend the festival and experience some of the best Asian films of the year!

Admission/Cost: $12 per screening, Opening and Closing Films $40 - Multi-film and Festival Passes available

7:00 PM Film: Indivisibili (Indivisible)
Identical twins Dasy and Viola appear to have it all: they're beautiful and gifted with captivating singing voices. They also happen to be conjoined at the hip, which is shamelessly exploited by their parents and close friends for money in the suburbs of Naples. Their lives turn upside-down when Dasy falls in love and they discover that they can be separated. Balancing the beautiful and the perverse with poise, and featuring a beguiling soundtrack by Enzo Avitabile, Edoardo De Angelis' new feature is a moving, eccentric fable about the pains of growing up.

Q/A with Yazdi Pithavala and Artistic Director, Antonio Iannotta

7:30 PM Stage: Más A docudrama about the dismantling of Tucson Unified School District's Mexican American Studies program or MAS. This cultural conflict is brought to life in an abstract sweat lodge where dancers represent the Mexican deities of life's natural forces. Más engages the audience in the debates around the passage in 2010 of Arizona House Bill 2281, which effectively banned the MAS program. The play's balance of poetry and reenactment captures the soul of the movement as well as telling a contemporary story of community.
