The Vietnamese American Roundtable (VAR) will be hosting a free public screening of the documentary Fighting for Family, available on Facebook from Friday, May 7th through Sunday, May 9th.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Chuh and Rex, hosted by VAR Boardmember Mimi Nguyen.
A sneak preview of the film and Q&A was featured at VAR's 46th Annual Black April Commemoration on April 30th, 2021.
ABOUT THE FILM: Almost two decades ago, Chuh and Rex, refugees from the indigenous tribes of Vietnam, fell in love and started a family in North Carolina. In 2017, the unthinkable happened. Chuh was deported to Vietnam, leaving Rex and their four daughters behind in the U.S. Chuh works on adjusting to life in Vietnam, while Rex resiliently balances working, raising her children, and maintaining her long-distance relationship. FIGHTING FOR FAMILY shares the family’s love story and fight to mobilize for Chuh’s return to the U.S. #EndDeportations #BringChuhHome
