Movie Screening with Director, Thursday Jan 29th

Join us as we view this 55-minute documentary portrait of the Hmong community from 1982 followed by a talk and discussion with co-director Peter O’Neil as he explains his recent work documenting his subjects over 20 years later.

The film explores the challenges of several Hmong individuals and shows some of their involvement with the local community. It documents how weddings, funerals, shamanic ceremonies, rock bands and soccer games were done during the early phase of Hmong settlement in the United States.

This is week two of a four-week series called, “Common Threads: From Vietnam to Iraq”, co-sponsored by The Office of Public Engagement of RISD and The Swearer Center of Brown University. The event is hosted by The Genesis Center. Click here to see photos from last week’s pandau exhibit at RISD. For more info contact Mike Ritz at

Free screening and discussion, 6:30pm to 8:30 pm, Thursday, Jan. 29th, Center for Integrative Technology, 169 Weybosset Street
