Far East Deep South Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Museum of the Bible will host a special screening of Far East Deep South, an award-winning film about a Chinese American family’s remarkable journey to the Mississippi Delta in search of their roots. Along the way, they discover miraculous revelations, emotional healing, and an unexpected history lesson about Asian immigrants in the segregated South. The film will be followed by a live discussion with filmmakers Larissa Lam and Baldwin Chiu and the unveiling of a 1930s Chinese Bible from Mississippi featured in the film that will be on exhibit at the museum.
