UWG to Host Atlanta Asian Film Festival

CARROLLTON, GA -- The University of West Georgia is hosting the 6th annual Atlanta Asian Film Festival on Oct. 12 and 19.

The AAFF is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating various communities about the rich diversity of Asian Pacific culture through films and movies. This is UWG's first time sponsoring the festival, joining other universities in the region to host the AAFF.

The two films that have been selected to screen at UWG are Artemisia from China and Cow from Taiwan. Artemisia is the story of a Chinese mother who struggles to deal with her children's contemporary problems and the pressures from her traditionally conservative and judgmental relatives. Cow, set during World War II, follows the story of a peasant who is charged with the task of looking after a special cow, even at the risk of his own life.

Artemisia will be shown on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom. Cow will be shown the following Tuesday, Oct. 19, at 7:00 p.m. in the TLC Room 1305.

The film screenings are free to UWG students, faculty and staff, but all of the community is invited and encouraged to attend. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at the AAFF website.
