LIQUOR STORE DREAMS offers an intimate portrait of the lives of Korean American liquor store owners and their second-generation ‘liquor store babies.’ Using a lens of relationality, the documentary opens space for tough intergenerational conversations about immigration, race, solidarity, and mental health. Join us for a screening and candid conversation with filmmaker So Yun Um and Skid Row People’s Market owner Danny Park.

Co-sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Asian American Studies Program, the Block Museum of Art, and the Pritzker Pucker Studio Lab for the Promotion of Mental Health Via Cinematic Arts.
