Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage!  Winner of Best Feature Film at the Berlin International Film Festival and nominated for the Grand Jury Prize: World Cinema/Dramatic @ Sundance Film Festival.  Acclaimed director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) presents a creative, endearing, coming-of-age comedy set in 1984, following an eleven-year-old Michael Jackson fanatic nicknamed "Boy" (James Rolleston).  Boy becomes the head of a household full of kids when his Nana leaves town for a funeral.  Boy's Dad (Waititi) re-enters Boy's life after being absent.   Waititi adopts a fanciful deadpan tone part Wes Anderson and part Flight of the Conchords.  It's one of the most creative comedies you'll see all year.  We'll be streaming from the library's free online platform Kanopy.  This award-winning video platform provides access to more than 30,000 independent, documentary, and international language films: Criterion Collection, Great Courses, and thousands of independent filmmakers.  Fresh organic popcorn served; this is a free program, all are welcome!

This is a Films & Videos program from SFPL. From feature films to youth-made videos, we’ve got something great to watch.
