Film Screening and Discussion: "Seeking Asian Female"

  • May 8, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

***This is an OPEN event. All are welcome!!! ***

 

Come out and join us as we kick off our May theme with this great documentary about race, dating and desirability.

As we watch the film we will consider the following:

What are the real-life outcomes of race-based fetishes?

Where do they come from?

Do they exist at all?

How does what we see in the film translate for other races?

Where, if anywhere, does ethnicity play a role?

    I just came across a reference to the film, from someone who saw the couple from Seeking Asian Female on the street. (Warning: other pages on this site show horrifically racist, misogynistic comments.)

    Given that the film ended on a relatively hopeful note, does this surprise you?

    For all those new to the knapsack group when you come to the front door it'll be locked. You'll have to dial up and well buzz you in. The instructions are on the dialer. Look for community change. The code should be 19

    I'm more exhausted than expected from a doctor's visit but I'd love to go if it's run again.

    Just a reminder that if you can't make it, please update your RSVP so that people on the waitlist will be able to attend!

      I'm confused. In the description, it says this is an open event and all are welcome. It doesn't sound limited.

      Ah, good point! For some of this group's events (e.g., the accountability and real talk sessions) there is a requirement that attendees have been to one prior meetup in the past six months to allow us to build on pre-existing community. That sentence is referring to that. However, there are space limitations at CCI, which is why we need an RSVP limit.

    There's a chance that work will take over my life today. RSVPing no just in case. Hopefully there will be spots later and I'll be available.

    Is it possible to borrow this film after/later? A couple folk I know can't make it this night.

      It's available on Comcast on -demand if you or friend has comcast. Think under Asian films section.

      May 7, 2013

    • Nick M

      That's a good idea. I have a few friends who can't make it who were very interested in seeing it.

    I'm on deadline and will have to relinquish my spot to someone else.

    What is the parking situation?

    May 7, 2013

    • Michael M

      I've never parked here but just assume downtown conditions aka little on street parking

    Discussion here is great. I hope we continue to exchange thoughts, ideas and experiences. However I strongly encourage everyone that does to ALSO come to the screening and share with us all. The film will certainly enrich that conversation.
