A Better Home

Saturday, September 28, 2013     |     3:00 pm, Erwin Steinberg Auditorium, Baker Hall A53

The Distinguished Margaret Morrison Lecture & Film Series Presents: "A Better Home" With the backdrop of the renaissance in this one-time steel city, A Better Home explores the changing faces of Chinese immigrant women and their journey to flourish. The characters dance between mundane chores and self-realization while working hard to build their dreamland. The film re-frames Chinese-American women's identities and celebrates their daily lives in a place they call home. Please join us for a special presentation of the film, A Better Home, and a discussion with one of the women featured in the film, Sue-mei Wu, Ph.D., Teaching Professor of Chinese Studies at Carnegie Mellon University.
