Asian American Film Series: Liquor Store Dreams

July 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Since 2010, SBTHP has presented the Asian American Film Series, a free event held on Fridays in July at the Alhecama Theatre. In an effort to explore the history and cultures of the Asian communities that once thrived in and around the Santa Barbara Presidio area, the series includes films that speak to the Asian American experience in the US. The films have addressed a broad range of historical and modern topics, such as the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, Chinese American adoptions, and the contributions of key Asian American figures.

This event is free to attend for all SBTHP members, with a suggested $5 donation for non-members. Seating is first come, first served!

This film series is made possible by the generous support of the George H. Griffiths and Olive J. Griffiths Charitable Foundation.

Film Premise:
Director and liquor store baby, So Yun Um and her father have never seen eye to eye on anything, especially not her career choices. Although his liquor store has provided her financial stability to dream big, there’s tension between father and daughter, and how their Korean culture and store have had a complicated past within a Black community. So goes on a journey to unpack this tension as well as the generational divide between her and her father. Liquor Store Dreams is a portrait of two second generation Korean Americans trying to create their own future by honoring their parent’s past through understanding and healing.

Followed by a Q&A with Director So Yun Um and Producer Eddie Kim.
