OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Screening the Documentary ‘(Mid) West of Somalia’ 1:30pm January 29, open to all, in the lower level of the New Ulm Library, 17 N Broadway with Gustavus Adolphus Communications Studies Professor Martin Lang and Noah O’Ryan, co-producer, and a panel of three Somali-Americans for a question and answer session following the film screening.  The documentary shares the stories of nine Somali-American men and women who are seeking success in the United States while also searching for a meaningful connection to the new home they’ve built in rural southern Minnesota. Set in Saint Peter and Mankato, the film captures moments ranging from funny to sad, including accidental encounters with forbidden foods and moments where differences in culture, faith, or skin color cause challenges for the new residents.  Bring a friend, bring your hospitality and your questions!
