Beyond Apu: A Community Conversation

When was the first time you remember seeing yourself reflected onscreen? Or have you yet to truly experience this?

On March 10th, Drexel University and the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) will host the Philadelphia premiere of Hari Kondabolu’s The Problem With Apu documentary, followed by a community discussion about representations of South Asian Americans in popular culture. All proceeds will benefit our work to document and share South Asian American stories. In the vein of SAADA’s award-winning First Days Project and Road Trips Project, we will also be collecting personal memories from the audience to permanently preserve in our archive.

Sat, March 10, 2018 – 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EST

Drexel University, URBN Center Screening Room – 3401 Filbert Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104

Tickets: $10 to $15
