This Sunday! The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience is dedicated to immersing people in uniquely American stories of survival, success, struggle, conflict, compassion and hope. So it’s perfectly fitting that they’ll be collaborating with POV, Asian Adult Adoptees of Washington and the Intiman Theatre to screen this award-winning doc. A Q&A with filmmaker will follow! For more information, visit the museum event calendar.
