The Film Clubby
Building empathy through the language of film
Welcome to NAE’s new Film Club, a monthly virtual film series focused on immigrant filmmakers and subject matters related to the immigrant experience in America. Each month we’ll screen one movie for free and then host a virtual discussion with a key member of the film team to discuss themes of immigration.
RSVP for our next film, The Donut King, on Friday, 6/11 @ 7 PM!
Donut KingAbout The Movie
Ted’s story is one of fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption. It’s the rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream. But, in life, great rise can come with great falls.
