November 30, 2017 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Blue Hill Public Library will host two showings of the film, Maineland, about the experiences of students from China coming to rural Maine to attend high school, on Thursday November 30th at 4:00 and 7:00 PM.
“Filmed over three years in China and the U.S., Maineland, directed by Miao Wang, is a multi-layered coming-of-age tale that follows two affluent and cosmopolitan teenagers as they settle into a boarding school in blue-collar rural Maine. Part of the enormous wave of ‘parachute students’ from China enrolling in U.S. private schools, they come seeking a Western-style education, escape from the dreaded Chinese college entrance exam, and the promise of a Hollywood-style U.S. high school experience.”
This event is sponsored by the Blue Hill Public Library. The event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information, call 374-5515.Location: Howard Room
