De Anza’s Gay-Straight Alliance in Cupertino, CA is screening the film “Saving Face,” a romantic comedy about right, wrong, and everything in between. “Saving Face” was the first feature film from writer and director Alice Wu. In the film, a Chinese-American lesbian and her traditionalist mother are reluctant to go public with secret loves that clash against cultural expectations.
You can see the film trailer here for a preview. The movie will be followed by a student-led discussion encompassing the friction between cultural and LGBT values. The movie will begin promptly at 6:15 p.m., so please arrive early. Refreshments will be provided.
“Saving Face” Film Screening, Thursday, October 29, 2009
Conference Room B @ 6:00 p.m., De Anza Community College Campus
