- DC APA Film screening of "9-MAN" documentary: "9-MAN" is an independent feature documentary about an isolated and exceptionally athletic Chinese-American sport (volleyball) that's much more than a pastime; see the trailer at http://youtu.be/PMHf2RlZh34. Since the 1930s, young men have played this gritty, streetball game competitively in the alleys and parking lots of Chinatown. Today, some 80 years later, nine-man is a lasting connection to Chinatown for a community of men who know a different, more integrated America and it's a game that has grown exponentially in athleticism. There will be two screenings on Friday, December 12 and Saturday, December 13 at 7:30 pm at the Founders Hall Auditorium on the George Mason Arlington Campus (3351 N Fairfax Dr, Arlington, VA 22201; across from Orange Line Virginia Square Metro Stop). The director , Ursula Liang, will be in attendance, and there will be Q&A following the screening. Buy tickets at http://dcapafilm.simpletix.com/Event/16679/9-MAN/; tickets are $12 online before December 12 or $15 at the door.
