DHFP: Viewing and Discussion of the Film “The Farewell”

  • Monday, January 31, 2022
  • 5:00 PM- 7:00 PM
  • Zoom
“The Farewell” is an award-winning 2019 comedy. The film stars Awkwafina as Billi, a Chinese American who returns to China with her family, planning a fake wedding in order to stealthily say goodbye to her beloved grandmother. Though she is dying, the family avoids telling her that she only has a few weeks to live. We will watch the film and then engage in a conversation about the issues it raises relevant to cross-cultural bioethics and health humanities. In lieu of a catered dinner, a restaurant gift card will be provided.

My favorite part of Schreyer is all the connections I've established and made. I've met so many awesome people. I feel like I fit in here.
