As part of the Teaching International curriculum at Penn State Greater Allegheny, the film, He ni zai yi gi (?Together?), will be shown on Thursday, December 3 at 4:30 p.m. in the Frable Building, room 119. The story follows a young violinist, Xiaochun and his father as they move from their small, provincial town to Beijing so Xiaochun can audition for a prestigious music academy. Their new life is unfamiliar but full of promise, allowing the young man to truly figure out which direction he wants to take in life.
Each year, Penn State Greater Allegheny adopts a country or region of the world as a common theme to inspire teaching and scholarship. The campus-wide international emphasis for 2009-10 is on East Asia and the environment.
