The first of our films celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month and an Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film and winner of the Camera D'Or at the Cannes Films Festival, THE SCENT OF GREEN PAPAYA is set in 1951 Saigon, where 10 year old Mui (Lu Man San) enters household service for an affluent but troubled Vietnamese family. Despite her servile role, Mui discovers beauty and epiphany in the lush physical details that envelope her. This movie is part of an in-person series happening on Wednesdays at Claremont Branch Library.
