Piedmont: Film Screening & Discussion

  • Ellen Driscoll - Playhouse 325 Highland Avenue Piedmont, CA, 94611 United States (map)

Free screening of “The Chinese Exclusion Act” from award-winning documentary filmmakers Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu, as part of the Diversity Film Series.

Following the screening, well-known community advocate David Lei, who is featured in the film, will lead a discussion on this little-known part of American history and its relevance for 2018 and beyond. Lei’s passion for building communities, social improvements, youth education and the arts has led to his becoming a tireless Bay Area volunteer with many organizations, such as the Center for Asian American Media.

There will be a food truck outside the theater from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Find out more at the Diversity Film Series website. Come early to avoid the line!
