"My Beijing Birthday" - Screening and Discussion

Asia Society presents the screening of comedy "My Beijing Birthday" followed with a discussion with filmmaker Howie Snyder.

January 29, 2009 7:00pm to 9:00pm

"My Beijing Birthday" takes a heartfelt and humorous look at the rapidly changing lives of a group of young Beijingers through the eyes of a New Yorker, Howie Snyder. The story shows us the group as 8-year-olds in 1996 studying Chinese stand-up comedy with Howie and their teacher Mrs. Ma. We visit the group again in 2008 as they relect on their lives and their new dreams for the future. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Howie Snyder.
