Asian Film Festival: Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass

Saturday, April 15th 2017
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Event Description

AsiaConnect proudly presents “Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass.”

The movie is set in 1980’s rural area of Vietnam and the story follows 12-year old Thieu, his 7-year old brother Tuong and Thieu’s childhood crush Moon. The brothers do everything together, play in rice paddies, running errands, sleep on same bed…their days are filled with curious adventures. Then one day Moon comes into the picture and incites Thieu’s insecurities and jealousy towards his brother Tuong who, by his nature, is trusting and full of innocence. Even when Thieu inflicts physical harm to Tuong, the younger brother continues to idolize Thieu and constantly seeks his approval.

This event is part of Illinois State University’s Asian Heritage Week, running from April 10-15. ¬†Asian Heritage Week is sponsored by the Office of the President, the College of Fine Arts, the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation, the Department of Languages, Literature, and Cultures, Design Streak, and AsiaConnect.
