Beyond Apu: A Community Conversation on South Asian American Representation in the Media


Mar 10, 2018
04:00 PM until 06:00 PM


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

On March 10th, 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.
