Cinema Chats: “Minari”

June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us this month in watching the award-winning film, “Minari.”

Join us this month in watching the award-winning film, Minari. In the early 1980’s, a Korean family moves to an Arkansas farm in search of its own American dream. They deal with the challenges of their life in a new and very different culture. Our guest Michelle (Mihye) No will discuss her reaction to the film and discuss her own experience growing up in both Korean and American cultures. She will touch on specific Korean and American cultural differences as well as first generation issues for all immigrants. The conversation will be moderated by Lucy Shahar.

Directed by Lee Isaac Chung, Minari is the winner of the 2020 Golden Globes Award for Best Foreign Language Motion Picture. Youn Yuh-Jung won the 2020 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in her role as the grandmother.

Minari is available for streaming on Amazon Prime, Vudu and YouTube for $5 or $6. It is also playing in select movie theaters.

Michelle (Mihye) No is an Italian-born, Korean-American culture journalist currently based in Berlin. She’s worked as a staff writer for BuzzFeed and Thrillist, and written for The New York Times, NBC, Today.com, and others. At BuzzFeed, she co-founded an award-winning Asian ERG (employee resource group) called A*FAMILY.

She graduated cum laude from Scripps College with a dual major in European Studies and Italian Studies, and is trilingual. She’s currently working on an essay collection about race and identity as a writer thrice-removed from her homeland.

This conversation will take place over Zoom.
