Ang Lee Film Series


Don't miss the free Ang Lee Film Series going on at the University of Houston-Downtown. If you're looking for a chance to unwind after a long day of work in the skyline, head north on Main and nestle into an auditorium to see a film made by one of the most socially-eccentric directors out there.

Tuesday: Mingle at an opening reception, then catch Pushing Hands (1992), Lee's first feature film. A Tai Chi demonstration is to follow.

Wednesday: Keep it short and simple mid-week with The Wedding Banquet (1993), my personal favorite and a strikingly dark, but up beat story about the social pressures on Chinese sons to marry straight.

Thursday: Top off the series with Eat, Drink, Man, Woman (1994) -— good things end in threes with this story about a chef and his relationship with his three daughters. A closing reception follows, as well as roundtable discussion with Dr. Chuck Jackson, Dr. Edmund Cueva, Dr. William Nowak and Dr. Johanna Schmertz. Also, look out for the wine bar during the closing banquet catered by Houston's Cafe La Tea.

You can't lose with this one.
