Kick off your summer with a special screening of the Academy Award-winning “Minari” followed by a community talk reflecting on our shared and diverse immigrant experiences.

EVENT 2: Saturday, July 10th (1-2:30pm Pacific): Community Talk

Did you and/or your family immigrate to the United States during the 80s, the time period MINARI is set in? Know someone who has an incredible story about their immigration journey to the States? Join us for an afternoon of story-sharing and reflection upon our shared and unique immigrant experiences. We will have a number of community guests to help us cultivate the discussion!

This event is presented in partnership by the Oakland Asian Cultural Center and Korean Center, Inc. The virtual screening is sponsored by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in San Francisco.


A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home. Learn more about Minari.
