RSVP for free virtual screening of MINARI + Q&A moderated by Sandra Oh on January 13 to celebrate Korean American Day

On Wednesday, January 13, celebrate Korean American Day with the cast & crew of MINARI. This special virtual screening will be followed by a conversation moderated by Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh (KILLING EVE). Join us for this special advance screening and Q&A for MINARI, in this special return engagement after the Hawai‘i premiere as HIFF40’s Opening Night Film!
Official Synopsis:
A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, MINARI follows a Korean American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream.
The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, MINARI shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
About Korean American Day
“We celebrate the nearly 120-year history of Korean Americans in the U.S. and our community’s invaluable contributions to this country’s innovative economy, rich culture, and robust democracy. The Korean American immigrant story is one of hard work, resilience, and hope for the future. On this Korean American Day, we are honored to commemorate the values, the sacrifice, and the vision of this dynamic group.” – Abraham Kim, Council of Korean Americans Executive Director
“MINARI is the movie we need right now: a gentle, truthful and tender story of family filled with kind people trying to love one another the best they can.”
– LA Times, Glenn Whipp
“One of the best movies of the year. Thoughtfully directed, vividly written, and beautifully acted, it’s a hopeful film, universally appealing despite – or perhaps because of – just how very Korean American it is.” – Slate, Karen Han
Mahalo to A24 for organizing this advance sneak peek in celebration of Korean American Day. A24 will release MINARI on Friday, February 12.

Film Available for 24 Hours (Starting Midnight PT). Followed by a Q&A w/ writer-director Lee Isaac Chung and the cast.
