Description:

Every Monday during May, we will be showing action movies in honor of Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.  Please join us in the Durant Library community room for films featuring pioneering martial artists who changed Western views on Asian filmmaking. We'll screen movies from multiple Asian countries through the month, including classics from China and Japan. Kung fu, pencak silak, taekwondo -- these are just a few of the martial arts forms represented this month.

Before every film, we'll provide a brief context for the production as well as books and other related films available for check-out. We'll even supply popcorn! 

To learn more about the films being shown, come to the information desk and pick up a flyer.
