Asian Pacific American Student Association (APASA): "Call Her Ganda" Forum Discussion with the Director, PJ Raval

Date & Time:
Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Description: 

When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case—an activist attorney (Virgie Suarez), a transgender journalist (Meredith Talusan) and Jennifer’s mother (Julita “Nanay” Laude)—galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of U.S. imperialism. -Official Selection, 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. Join us as we have a conversation with PJ Raval, director of the powerful film, "Call Her Ganda." In honor of Filipino American Heritage month and LGBTQIA+ History month, we dive deep into a conversation about intersectionality, imperialism and colonization. This event is cosponsored by APASA, JCL and the Ethnic Studies Department.
