Come Together Home, a film by Ivy Lin, will be screened Monday, May 31st at the Kennedy School Theater (5736 NE 33rd).
The screening is part of the History Pub series, and includes a presentation prior to the film, and a Q and A after. Admission is free, and program begins at 7pm.
The film’s synopsis:
Block 14 in Lone Fir Cemetery, the first Chinese burial ground in Portland—and site of as many as 1,500 burials—now stands as a fenced off void of gravel after most of the remains were exhumed and shipped back to China in 1928 & 1949.
Sixty years later, Director Ivy Lin follows the footsteps of the missing 1949 shipment in an extraordinary journey from Portland to Hong Kong.
