CINEMA: The Farewell

Monday 20th January, 2020 - 20:00

| €6 Early Bird/€9 BOOK TICKETS NOW »

When Billi’s family learn that her beloved grandmother, Nai-Nai, has been given mere months to live, they hastily stage a family wedding to facilitate a gathering in China. But they refuse to tell Nai-Nai about her illness.

Billi, who was born in China but has been raised in the US, struggles with this deception – she must deal with her own frustration at the family’s refusual to tell Nai-Nai the truth, as well as her sorrow at the prospect of losing her grandmother. Returning to China for the first time since her childhood, Billi also faces a broader clash of cultures, which leads to further tensions and bewilderment.

The Farewell is a humorous and moving story of inter-generational family dynamics.
