Film at Noon – Mah-Jongg: The Tiles that Bind

Mah-Jongg is more than a game – it’s a way of life! This light-hearted yet deeply moving portrait of the Asian-American and Jewish-American women who play this centuries-old Chinese game sheds light on the experiences of the players that simultaneously define and transcend cultural boundaries. Along the way, it proves again and again to be a bridge connecting seemingly unlike individuals, spanning generations, continents and cultures, and transcending classification as merely a game.  For Older Adults – Not Just for Seniors.

Film directed by Bari Pearlman and Phyliss Heller.  Thursday, December 10, noon at the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia. $8 for film and lunch.
