Mon. 11/9, 7pm: Film: Our National Family Album

As part of this year's Spirit & Place Festival, the Kan-Kan is hosting an online panel to discuss the importance of film in preserving the stories of our 20th & 21st century lives. What do these stories say to us now? What will be the stories from the extraordinary time we are in today? Before our conversation, we urge all attendees to screen the documentary These Amazing Shadows, which tells the story of the National Film Registry, how the visual medium of film is our nation's family album and why it matters. This event is free, but pre-registration is required. Learn more and sign up!

11/5-15: Film: All the rest of the Spirit and Place events!

We're not the only great event during this year's Spirit and Place Festival! Check them all out here

NEW to Kan-Kan On-Demand

Based on true events, teenage sisters Bessie and Jo paint glow-in-the- dark watch dials at the American Radium Factory in 1920s New Jersey. When girls at the factory mysteriously begin to fall ill, Bessie uncovers a corporate scandal and fights back in a radical coming-of-age story.

The Donut King

Ted’s story is one of fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption. It’s the rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream. But, in life, great rise can come with great falls.

Coming Home Again

Coming Home Again is a 2019 American-South Korean drama film directed by Wayne Wang and starring Justin Chon. It is based on a 1995 New Yorker essay by Chang-Rae Lee, who co-wrote the screenplay with Wang. The film premiered as part of the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.

Short of the Week: Nobody Knows
