Please join us as we screen The Farewell (2019) via Zoom. Lulu Wang directed this moving, heartfelt, funny film in which Billi (played by pop star Awkwafina) and her family return to China to say goodbye to Billi’s grandmother, the matriarch of the family.  For this purpose a wedding is hastily arranged, which makes sense in the family’s logic and traditions. This is a movie about how families process powerful emotions in different cultures, and has universal reverberations.
