Gimme Kudos*

Thursday, February 5, 2015 7:30pm

A superstar reporter at a Nanjing newspaper, Gu is a man who seems to have it all: a respectable job, a sizeable modern apartment, and a pretty police officer girlfriend. Little does he realize his whole universe is about to fall apart after his meeting with Yang, a country bumpkin who demands public kudos in his newspaper for saving a university coed from rape. Brushing him off at first, Gu finally decides to investigate the case thanks to Yang?s relentless hounding. He finds out Yang?s old dying father was a national labor model, with diplomas galore extolling his exemplary work all over the walls in his decrepit hut. Never "recognized" for anything, Yang determines to show his father his own public kudos in a last desperate attempt to keep death at bay. But everything becomes more complicated after Gu befriends the alleged rape victim, Ouyang Hua, a blossoming young woman as beautiful as she is mysterious. She originally refuses to corroborate Yang?s story. Only when the truth is about to be revealed does she try to thwart its publication by appealing to Gu?s conscience, claiming that her whole future and reputation will be at stake. At the horns of a dilemma between objective truth and subjective reality, Gu is forced to delve into his own psyche only to find his value system increasingly unreliable, the raison d?etre behind his profession on the verge of collapse, and his relationship with his long-time girlfriend all the more precarious.

Citizen USA: A 50 State Road Trip 12:00pm Reserve Tickets

Filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi's husband is just one in millions of immigrants who came to America legally. He was happy as a resident alien, until his son was born. Suddenly he wanted to become an American, so he started down the path to citizenship and found that the naturalization process changed him. He felt like he really belonged to this country, and he was no longer a foreigner in his own family. His experience inspired Alexandra to set out on a road trip, across America, to all 50 states, to experience the moment when new citizens take their oath, to find out why so many people are willing to renounce their birth country and swear allegiance to the United States of America.

Mai's America 1:15pm Reserve Tickets

A spunky Vietnamese teenager named Mai gets the chance of a lifetime — to study in the United States. Expecting Hollywood, she instead lands in rural Mississippi, a crazy quilt of self-proclaimed rednecks, cliquish teenagers, South Vietnamese exiles and transvestite soulmates. As she tries to fit in and to make ends meet, Mai discovers that America is both less and far more than she bargained for. From cosmopolitan Hanoi to the heart of the Deep South, Mai’s unforgettable journey offers an outsider’s glimpse inside America from filmmaker Marlo Poras. (80 min)

Monkey Dance: Cambodian Refugee Children 3:00pm Reserve Tickets

This film presents the lives of three Cambodian-American teenagers who come of age in the U.S. while holding on to some aspects of their Cambodian culture such as Cambodian dance. Children of Cambodian refugees, they inhabit a tough, working class world shadowed by their parents' nightmares of the Khmer Rouge. Traditional Cambodian dance links them to their parents' culture, but fast cars, hip consumerism, and good times often pull harder. For the parents, their new home in Lowell, Massachusetts held the hope of safety, employment, and a chance to finally rebuild some of what was shattered by the Khmer Rouge. But for their children, the city offers a dizzying array of choices - many of them risky. “Monkey Dance” is the story of how three kids navigate the confusing landscape of urban adolescence and ultimately start to make good on their parents' dreams. (65 min)

The Learning 4:30pm Reserve Tickets

One hundred years ago, American teachers established the English-speaking public school system of the Philippines. Now, in a striking turnabout, American schools are recruiting Filipino teachers. The Learning is the story of four Filipina women who reluctantly leave their families and schools to teach in Baltimore. With their increased salaries, they hope to transform their families' lives back in their impoverished country. But the women also bring idealistic visions of the teacher’s craft and of life in America, which soon collide with Baltimore’s tough realities. “While I was born and raised in the Philippines, I’ve lived my entire adult life in the U.S. I’m both an insider and an outsider, which allows me to have a distinct point of view,” says filmmaker Ramona Diaz. (90 min)

Chinatown: Strangers in a Strange Land 6:45pm Reserve Tickets

This History Channel documentary ventures back 150 years into the tight-knit communities that exist in the Chinatown that can be found in nearly every major North American city to tell the story of the Chinese-American experience. Find out why just two of China's many provinces contributed the vast majority of 19th century immigrants and learn about the prejudice and hatred they had to overcome in their new land. Examine the many enigmas that surround the Chinese in America to this day: the contrast between their secretive ways and the openness of American society, the violence of Chinese gangs and the success of individual entrepreneurs, and their steadfast adherence to ancient traditions and customs even as new opportunities are embraced and exploited.
