About this Event

HOSTED BY Center for All Abilities and Chatham Square NYPL.

Please join us on October 27, 2021 for our free community screening of the film CONFETTI. The film will be screened both in-person and online.

In-person attendance is capped at 35 people, and all in-person attendees are required to wear masks. Refreshments will be available to-go for in-person attendees at the end of the film screening.


Written and directed by award-winning Chinese-born filmmaker ANN HU, based on her own experiences, CONFETTI illustrates the journey of a 9-year-old girl named Meimei, who moves with her mother Lan from their small town in China to New York City. Meimei has struggled to be accepted in her school and community, in part because no one has successfully noticed that she suffers from dyslexia. Lan braves the move to New York and a job with a new employer all in order to help her daughter, but finding the right school — especially for a visiting immigrant — proves to be even more difficult than she could have anticipated.

CONFETTI thoughtfully touches on the often-silent struggles faced by so many immigrant families, but ultimately provides the reminder that amongst a deluge of challenges, a sprinkling of hope, heart, and determination can help make sense of a confusing world and our place in it.
