Cultural arts treasures from CCAPW and the Fresno Phil
Sent to mailinglist subscribers on March 8, 2016
After you enjoy seeing the Romanian comedy “The Treasure” with us this Friday night, March 11, at the historic Tower Theatre, Filmworks would like to recommend two more cultural arts gems this weekend from our sponsors that feel like real treasures.
FILM: Changing Season
Our friends from the Central California Asian Pacific Women present a sneak-peek screening of the award-winning documentary film “Changing Season: On the Masumoto Family Farm” this Saturday, March 12, at 5 p.m. at the Clovis Community College auditorium (Building AC1, Room 150).
The special engagement of this movie — a favorite at the Celebrating Asian American Film festival (CAAM Fest) in San Francisco — takes an intimate look at the multi-generational Masumoto Family Farm in Del Rey, south of Fresno. The film, which has not yet been widely released, will be broadcast nationwide on PBS later this spring. This sneak peek will include a pre-show reception and also a post-film discussion with the Masumoto family, hosted by former broadcast journalist Zoua Vang.
You can buy tickets online for $20, an early-bird discount extended through March 9 for Filmworks supporters. The ticket price includes the reception and the discussion. After March 9 and at the door, tickets will cost $25. All proceeds from the event go toward funding CCAPW’s scholarship program, which is in its 36th year of empowering the next generation of the Central Valley’s Asian Pacific American women leaders.
CCAPW is a screening sponsor of the April 8 Filmworks movie “Mountains May Depart,” the Chinese drama from acclaimed master director Jia Zhangke.
