In the Family Watch Party and Panel

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This fall, in collaboration with the Film Studies Programs in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at UNC-Chapel Hill, The Ackland Film Forum presents an all virtual series on Queer Cinema. The second film in our Queer Cinema series is In the Family (Patrick Wang, 2011, 169 minutes). The Independent Spirit Award-nominated debut of acclaimed filmmaker Patrick Wang (A Bread FactoryThe Grief of Others), In The Family is a heartfelt story woven around child custody, two-Dad families, loss, interracial relations, the American South, and the nature of what it means to be in a family, all explored with ambitious and rewarding nuance.


Schedule of Events 

6 p.m.

Watch In the Family along with filmmaker Patrick Wang and share your thoughts and questions for the filmmaker on Twitter. Feel free to use the hashtag #AcklandFilmForum. 

9 p.m.

Following the watch party, join director Patrick Wang, Heidi Kim (English and Comparative Literature and Director of the Asian American Center, UNC-Chapel Hill), and Martin Louis Johnson (English and Comparative Literature, UNC-Chapel Hill) for a virtual post-film discussion.

Links to both the streaming film and panel are provided with registration.
