Screen Asia: GRIT – Documentaries on Work and Life

Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015

06:00 PM

This short film series features three striking documentaries — JEEPNEY, Tashi’s Turbine, and Changing Season: On the Masumoto Family Farm. The films give glimpses into the joys and struggles of daily working lives.

Asia Society is excited to welcome David “Mas” Masumoto, subject of Changing Season, to visit with guests to talk about his experiences as a third-generation farmer, his writings, and more after the screenings.
