Where: Space Gallery, 538 Congress St., Portland

What: “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail” documentary film

CAFAM and Space Gallery are co-hosting the screening of this fascinating documentary about a small bank owned by a Chinese family faced with fighting criminal charges during U.S. financial crisis. The film has won many awards for telling such a compelling ‘underdog’ tale, set in New York’s Chinatown.

Please come out and see the film on July 5th at Space Gallery. CAFAM members receive a discounted ticket price of $6! And we’ll be serving Chinese tea at the screening. Hope to see you there!
