The film screening is made possible in part by Silicon Valley Reads 2019: Finding Identity in Family History.

This documentary is about an African American family that discovers its Chinese ancestry:

With the support of her brothers and the help of encouraging strangers, Paula eventually pieced together the full story of her grandfather’s life, following his story from China to Jamaica and back, and connecting with 300 surprised relatives who were overjoyed to meet her.

Park for free on local streets or use the San José City parking lot on Phelan Avenue ($6).
