Science Fiction TV Dinner Small Bites: The Mailbox

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 6:00pm to 7:15pm

, Online

The Science Fiction TV Dinner series has gone virtual, to help keep our community safe during the pandemic. We’re shifting the format slightly, presenting Small Bites: short films from talented creators that invite us to explore a range of possible futures.

Our latest small bite is The Mailbox, a 2017 science fiction film about time travel and Chinatowns directed by Louis Yin. We’ll screen the 18-minute film, and then have a conversation with Louis, a writer and filmmaker based in China, and Diane Wong, assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Rutgers University and a researcher who studies the Asian diaspora and the urban immigrant experience.

We'll also feature a segment on future cuisine by Corey S. Pressman, an educator, anthropologist, poet, and member of CSI’s Imaginary College.

This virtual event is free and open to everyone. Register today!
