CHAN for her dedication and vision, and to all of the talented actors for breathing life into the Dow scripts: Eric Cheung (Yung), Tim Corbett (Chief Inspector), Alexander Holden (Dow), Sophia Koevary (Miss French), Danny Mourino (Rosen), and Josh Santora (Mulloy).

Small Talk 日常對話

Taiwanese film “Small Talk” wins the Teddy for best documentary at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival. The film features director Hui-Cheng Huang’s attempt to reveal and reconcile her painful past between herself and her mother, who is a Taoist priestess and a lesbian mom. As the Teddy Award jurors stated “Small Talk is the director's courageous portrayal of her family story, which gives an audience an inside look at a culture that we might not be familiar with. This powerful documentary manages to be of universal significance and extremely intimate at the same time.” We hope you will join us in watching this powerful film.

Café Philo @ Boston 誠摯地邀請您一同觀賞台灣紀錄片『日常對話』。
時間:12:00pm, 4/9/2017 (Sunday)
地點:Museum of Fine Art
『日常對話』是由黃惠偵執導,侯孝賢監製的紀錄長片,是台灣史上第一次獲得柏林影展泰迪熊獎最佳紀錄片的電影。導演透過看似平常的對話,訴說著與母親(法師)牽引亡魂的童年,家暴的父親與那些對於缺乏母愛的困惑。這部作品不僅只於同志議更多的是家庭與母女關係該慶幸這樣的故事發生在自己而非別人的生命中唯有如此故事才有機會被記錄下來。」──黃惠偵

Maihaugan Gallery exhibit examines Chinese students at MIT
Opens Friday, February 10th, 9:30am-11:00am
Maihaugen Gallery | Building 14N-130, MIT Campus, Cambridge 
In 1877, the first student from China matriculated at MIT. By 1910, China was sending more students to MIT than any other foreign country. From these beginnings, the Institute became one of the most popular overseas destinations for Chinese students, many seeking to contribute to their country’s modernization through engineering, science, and commerce. These students left a legacy of strong ties between China and “Tech” that profoundly influenced the course of globalization.
Organized for the Maihaugen Gallery by Emma J. Teng, T.T. and Wei Fong Chao Professor of Asian Civilizations at MIT, China Comes to Tech: 1877-1930 commemorates 140 years of Chinese students at the Institute. Open through November 2017.

Lecture on Angel Island

"Preserving Immigrant Detention: Angel Island as Case Study"

by Professor Monica Pelayo
Friday, December 9th, 6:00pm-8:30pm

Old North Church | 193 Salem St, Boston
FREE | OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Co-sponsored by the Old North Foundation

Between 1910 and 1940, Angel Island served as an immigration station in the San Francisco bay area. Unlike its East Coast counterpart, Angel Island was specifically constructed to detain and interrogate Asian immigrants attempting to enter the country. After the federal government stopped using the site, local Asian American activists lobbied to have it preserved as a symbol of immigrant history. This lecture will survey the strategies that these public historians used to retell this history. At the center of their efforts lay the question—how can public historians interpret the site for audiences who only know about Ellis Island?

Join Monica Pelayo and Susan Chinsen of CHSNE immediately following the lecture for a reception and community conversation focused on historical sites like Old North and how they tell their own immigrant stories. What are our responsibilities to our community?
Monica Pelayo is an Assistant Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where she also serves as the Director of the Public History Track in the History Master's program. Her research focuses on research primarily deals with issues of race, immigration, and American collective memory. She is currently working on a book-length study, “Narrating A Nation of Immigrants: Race, Memory and Cultural Policy in Cold War America."

SEEDS OF FREEDOM: A Vision for America
Film Screening and Launch of James Phinney Baxter Lecture Series

BOSTON – November 4, 2016 – Boston Public Library is kicking off the James Phinney Baxter Lecture Series on Thursday, November 10, in Rabb Hall at the Central Library in Copley Square with the premiere of the film Seeds of Freedom: A Vision for America. The film presents a revolutionary look at the synthesis between European colonists and the American Indian in the evolution of American democracy, mind, and spirit. At the event, Mohawk elder Tom Porter and Pilgrim Scholar Gary Marks will present insights into the Iroquois Great Law and the Pilgrim vision for humanity as they apply to today and the future. The event begins at 5 p.m. with a meet and greet with Tom Porter, Gary Marks, and the filmmaker followed by the film screening at 6 p.m. and a discussion led by film director Andrew Cameron Bailey. 

Film Synopsis: Eminent philanthropist/historian James Phinney Baxter (1831-1921) believed that America must embody the high ideals of New England's original settlers if it is to become a global exemplar of liberty, equality, and justice. In 1921 he left a bequest instructing Boston to build a Pantheon to perpetuate the founding ideals and principles. Baxter's great-great-granddaughter Connie Baxter Marlow adds a missing piece - the role of the American Indian in the evolution of democracy and the American mind and spirit. The film is written, directed, and produced by Andrew Cameron Bailey and Connie Baxter Marlow of Cameron/Baxter Films. View a trailer for the film here.

The Baxter Project Team has produced booksfilmsphotography exhibitions, and talks over the past 25 years to bring the Pilgrim vision and the Native American voice, heart, and spirit forward. 

About James Phinney Baxter: James Phinney Baxter felt there must be a New England Pantheon or Temple of Honor to house a pictorial record of the deeds and ideals of the founders of New England. He was well aware of “the persistent attempt to defame and belittle the Pilgrim and the Puritan” before and during 1920, the 300th Anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower. In 1921 Mr. Baxter bequeathed money to the City of Boston with the specification that in the future it would be used to build the Pantheon. A portion of the fund has been used to create The Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement and supports the James Phinney Baxter Lecture Series.

About The James Phinney Baxter Lecture Series: The James Phinney Baxter Lecture Series is dedicated to Baxter’s vision of America - realizing its promise of liberty, justice and equality for all. The series will be held semi-annually leading up to 2020 - the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower. The Lecture Series will include subjects that promote the commemorative and public understanding of the history of the settlement of and immigration to New England, past and present.

Community Film Screening and Lunch
Chinese Couplets
with director Felicia Lowe
LOCATION IN CHINATOWN TO BE ANNOUNCED 
Free and open to the public! 
A Lite Lunch will be provided

Part memoir, part history, part investigation, the filmmaker’s search for answers about her mother’s emigration to America during the Chinese Exclusion era reveals the often painful price paid by immigrants who abandoned their personal identity, the burden of silence they passed on to their offspring and the intergenerational strife between immigrants and their American born children.
Felicia Lowe is an award winning independent television producer, director, and writer with more than 35 years of production experience. Broadcast on PBS and abroad, her documentaries Carved in Silence and China: Land of My Father have garnered numerous awards. A descendant of Angel Island detainees, Lowe is actively involved in the preservation of the Angel Island Immigration Station.

It connects historic photographs with Google Maps locations in an user-friendly interface, allowing you to learn about local history at your own pace. 
We have a new tour up highlighting the images and locations we researched for the These Words exhibition. Just like the exhibition, this tour features materials that speak to the local histories of printing, reading, and writing. Check out archival photographs of previous BPL branches, restaurant menus, the Oxford Street Bulletin Board and so much more situated with their original locations.

Playwright Kenneth Lin (TV’s House of Cards) delivers “an absorbing, incisive new play that crackles with authenticity” (NY Times), just in time for the climax of a surprising election season. Michael Tow (Chinglish) plays a New York assemblyman who's been dubbed "The Republican Obama." The son of Chinese immigrants and a decorated war veteran, he looks forward to a seemingly limitless political career. When someone from his past threatens to reveal a college transgression, he must decide how far he'll go to keep the incident out of the public eye.
