"Don't be Tired" Film Screening and Discussion with Director Afshin Hashemi

Nov 01, 2016
06:00 PM to 08:00 PM
102 Chemistry Building

Communicating across cultures is challenging as each culture has set rules that its members take for granted. Few of us are aware of our own cultural biases because cultural imprinting starts at a very early age. "Don't be Tired" centers around this very issue and asks if it is even possible to communicate without being close to each other in terms of language and culture and, if it is, to what extent can this link people together? 

The film screening will be followed by a question and answer session with the film's director Afshin Hashemi. The event is free and open to all.

This event is sponsored by the Iranian Student Association at Penn State, The Center for Global Studies, and The Department of Film-Video and Media Studies at Penn State.
