Come join us for the screening of the documentary Knives by Wawa Li and Yvonne Léa Carpentier-Wheeler.

Knives is an intimate and experimental documentary on the friendship between Dimitri and Wawa, their common fascination for swords and knives objects and the Chinatown neighborhood in which their friendship takes place. Dimitri, who is an intermittent inhabitant of the area, is visited by Wawa sporadically. Throughout their adventures, they encounter multiple characters, also residents of the neighborhood, which provide an insider portrayal of the complexity of the living conditions of the glamorized neighborhood.

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
