Please join us for this special screening of “Can” (amongourkin.org) on Tue. April 29 sponsored by New York Women in Film and Television (nywift.org), followed by a Q&A with the producer/director Pearl J. Park and a networking get together at a local restaurant Cellar 58, 58 Second Avenue (at 3rd Street), New York, NY.
Shot over a three-and-a-half-year period, “Can" provides a window into the inner dynamics of one Vietnamese-American family and their conflicts as the immigrant parents deal with the mental illness of their American raised son Can. The protagonist of this film, Can, is one of the few Asian Americans speaking publicly about living with depression and bipolar disorder, defying cultural norms. Bringing attention to a national behavioral health disparity, this real-life narrative allows viewers to examine critically social and systemic factors that affect Asian American families with mental illness.
