Asian American Womanhood and Resilience:
Messages from the Movie "Turning Red"
Thursday, July 14, 2022, 2:30 to 4 p.m. (Via zoom)
In this webinar, we will explore what it is like growing up Asian in America, Asian American womanhood, and resilience through the discussion of Disney and Pixar's original feature film "Turning Red".
The film introduces 13-year-old Meilin Lee who is torn between being her mother's obedient daughter and the chaos of her youth. We will discuss salient topics in contemporary Asian America such as mental health, parental pressure, the "model minority" myth, and intergenerational trauma and resilience.
In particular, we will highlight the ways generational trauma is passed down between grandmothers, mothers, and daughters in cultures that are largely oppressive towards women, how it shows up in the immigrant family experience, and what healing, resilience, and growth look like in the Asian and Asian American communities.
