    Second Sunday Culture Film: For My Father’s Kingdom

    Penn Museum

    • Sunday March 14th 2021, 2:00pm to 4:00pm
    This is a film about a patriarch from Tonga who marries a New Zealand woman and begins a family with her, while becoming a significant supporter of his church and village leader. Over time churches have absorbed the traditional practices of massive feast giving and donation, which the village groups used to perform. How the family balances its own needs versus the collective needs of the community is at the center of this amazing and nuanced film.

    Speaker: Gwendolyn Gordon, Legal Studies & Business Ethics, Wharton

    Sponsors: Penn Hawaiian Club, Philadelphia Asian American Film and Filmmakers, Penn Cinema and Media Studies Progra, The Wolf Humanities Center
