A virtual screening of a documentary film titled Above the Drowning Sea will be shown as part of The Chinese American Experience & Beyond series.
This beautiful film tells the stories of Jewish people who fled Nazi-controlled Vienna during the mid-20th century and found refuge in Shanghai, China. The tales of these people are deeply moving and testimony to survival. Following the film, there will be commentary by executive director, co-director, and writer Rene Balcer and producer Carolyn Hsu-Balcer.
This nationally produced film will be presented by the SDSU Chinese Cultural Center and the San Diego Chinese History Museum in cooperation with the SDSU Jewish Institute, and Temple Emanuel-El. Virtual seating is limited. Darlene G. Davies
