In a partnership with Visual Communications and Angry Asian Man , JANM is pleased to present a tenth anniversary screening of the theatrical release of the romantic comedy/drama Saving Face .

A Manhattan surgeon faces pressure from her mother to find a nice man and settle down. What the mother doesn’t realize is that her daughter is gay. The film looks at the surgeon’s struggle to find balance between career, romance, and family expectations.

Rated R for some sexuality and language.

Following the screening, there will be a Q&A moderated by Angry Asian Man (Phil Yu) with director Alice Wu, producer Teddy Zee, and cast including Michelle Krusiec, Lynn Chen, and Brian Yang.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., screening at 7 p.m., Q&A at 8:45 p.m. Reception with cash bar to follow, at Far Bar, 347 E. 1st St., Los Angeles, CA 90012.
