Two films in the spirit of Asian Pacific Heritage Awareness will run during March and April on the Texas A&M University-Kingsville campus, free to the public.

The first happens Saturday, March 25, at 7 p.m. with Osama. The first entirely Afghan film shot since the fall of the Taliban, Osama follows a mother who has disguised her daughter as a boy so that she will be able to travel out of her house and support her family under oppressive Taliban rule. It will be shown in room 219AB of the Memorial Student Union Building.

Next up is Memoirs of a Geisha, to be shown Friday, March 31, at 7 p.m. in the Biology Earth Science Building auditorium, room 100. This Oscar-nominated film tells the fictional story of an impoverished girl’s turbulent life journey to become a renowned geisha.
