To celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, we embark on a journey of building bridges among different communities to increase understandings and decrease tensions.  UCSF's Asian Health Institute collaborates with Asian Pacific American Systemwide Alliance (APASA) and Office of Diversity & Outreach to co-sponsor a free virtual screening of the film "Minari" on Friday, May 14 for the public and Saturday, May 15 between 6-10pm for all UCSF members. This Oscar nominated film tells the story of a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. Through this film, we wish to raise the awareness in the universality of being American and to bring different perspectives of the Asian American experiences to our community.

After the film screening, there will be a post-movie discussion on Wednesday, May 19 from 4-5pm. will be a casually facilitated conversation to those who wish to share their experiences from themes emerged from the film and for those who wish to learn more about AAPI heritage.
