The U.S. Army Fort Benning and The Maneuver Center of Excellence celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month by conducting a mini film festival throughout the month of May. All of the films to be screened touch on various AAPI stories, cultures, and issues:

Cutie and the Boxer directed by Zachary Heinzerling
In The Matter of Cha Jung Hee directed by Deann Borshay Liem
Of Civil Wrongs and Rights: The Fred Korematsu Story directed by Eric Paul Fournier
When I Walk directed by Jason DaSilva
Wo Ai Ni (I Love You Mommy) directed by Stephanie Wang-Breal

Cutie and the Boxer Conversation Starters:

Ushio says, “Art is a demon…a demon that drags you along. It’s not something you can stop, even if you should…You throw yourself away to be an artist.” Why are humans drawn to express themselves in ways we define as art? Have you experienced art as a compulsion, the way Ushio describes it? What role does art play in your life?
