Please join us for a special DIASPORA screening of Debbie Lum’s documentary Try Harder! on Saturday, December 4, at 4:30 pm at Pasadena Laemmle Royal Playhouse 7.

Recently named a New York Times Critic’s Pick, this Sundance documentary follows 5 seniors at famed Lowell High School in the San Francisco Bay Area as they navigate the high stakes of higher ed admissions.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A moderated by DIASPORA’s own Dino-Ray Ramos in conversation with Try Harder! Cinematographer Kathy Huang.

There is also a special ticket giveaway to the screening thanks to a generous donation from Stand with Asian Americans (SwAA). Enter here. You can also purchase tickets here.
