Downtown Library: 1st Floor Lobby


Join us for a film screening and discussion of the 2022 award-winning documentary BAD AXE directed by David Siev.

The film captures a closely-knit Asian American family living in rural Michigan during the pandemic as they fight to keep their local restaurant and American dream alive. With rising racial tensions, the family uses their voice and must unite as they reckon with backlash from a divided community, white supremacists, and intergenerational trauma from Cambodia's "killing fields."

There will be an opportunity for a Q&A with members of the family after the screening.

This unrated film is 100 minutes long.
