A discussion led by Sociology Professors Diane Sandage, Gordon Chang, Chris Adamski-Mietus, and Bridget Welch will follow the film.

When Korean American filmmaker Grace Lee was growing up in Missouri, she was the only Grace Lee she knew. Once she left the Midwest however, everyone she met seemed to know "another Grace Lee." But why did they assume that all Grace Lees were reserved, dutiful, piano-playing overachievers? The filmmaker plunges into a funny, highly unscientific investigation into all those Grace Lees who break the mold -- from a fiery social activist to a rebel who tried to burn down her high school. With wit and charm, The Grace Lee Project puts a hilarious spin on the eternal question, "What's in a name?"

This film presentation is part of the Art and Self Perception event series coordinated by University Libraries. Please contact University Libraries' Administration Office at (309) 298-2762 with any questions.
