Films that Transform: The Farewell (2019) POSTPONED

Event

Arts Building Moyse Hall, 853 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 0G5, CA

The event has been postponed. We plan to screen the series in April and May 2021.

Join McGill Programs in Whole Person Care for the screening and discussion of The Farewell. In this funny, uplifting tale Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. The film beautifully depicts how different cultures handle death, and the complications that come with navigating these cultural differences.
