Asian Film Series – Nov 14
Please join the Interdisciplinary Asian Film Series for our showing of “Nasi Lemak 2.0” November 14, in Lillis 185, at 7:00pm
It’s a Malaysian sinosphere film about “food, directed by and starring a rapper who has been investigated for sedition, that the Malaysian government tried to stop from being made, that delivers the anything-goes fast and furious spirt of Stephen Chow’s early movies, that became a massive word of mouth hit, that prompted protests, and tax features multiple musical numbers…This is the first movie to appeal to all three of the country’s main ethnic groups: Malay, Chinese, and Indian with some of the most gloriously stupid jokes ever put on screen.”
Dr. Allison Groppe, from the East Asian Languages and Literatures Department, will be introducing the film, as well as leading a discussion after the screening of the film. The film will be shown in original audio, consisting of many languages, with English subtitles.
Join us for each of our five films this term, each presenting a popular cinema entertainment from Asian cinema, with an educational introduction and discussion. Generously supported by the Asian Studies Program at the University of Oregon.
Also be on the look out for our winter term series, theme to be announced.
