Past Community Events:
  • Free film screening and discussion of The LuLu Sessions
    When: October 25, 6pm
    Where: Herbst Hall, UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion
    1600 Divisadero Street, 2nd floor
    San Francisco, CA 94115
    Cost: Free, register here
    The Program:
    The LuLu Sessions is proud to support the Reimagine End of Life Week and has partnered with the Center for Asian American Media and UCSF, for a special community screening. The screening is also in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The admission is free, and tickets are available here. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Dr. Mindy Goldman, Director of Breast Cancer Follow Up Program at UCSF, Debby Hamolsky, former RN at the UCSF Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center and the filmmaker, S. Casper Wong, followed by an introduction to the Peace Pod Project.


    The LuLu Sessions (USA, 2011, feature documentary film, 86 minutes)
    A film by S. Casper Wong
    In English and is not yet MPAA-rated

    The LuLu Sessions is a raw and deeply personal documentary about the last 15 months of the larger-than-life LuLu, through the eyes of someone who couldn’t be more different - her best friend and ex-something, the filmmaker. Leave your ideas of boundaries in love and life behind, because this film will take you to a whole new frontier – and it’s likely to make your jaw drop, laugh out loud, cry and continue to think about it long after you have left the theater.

    Unlike anyone you've ever met, LuLu is a hard-living, chain-smoking rebel with a tender heart; poet with a potty mouth; farm girl; former cheerleader; world-class biochemistry pioneer; and beloved professor. Aka Dr. Louise Nutter, she has just discovered a new anticancer drug when, at 42, she learns she has terminal breast cancer. Reminiscent of Peter Friedman and Tom Joslin’s Silverlake Life, The LuLu Sessions, via video diary, records the journey S. Casper Wong shared with her mentor, best friend, and on-again-off-again lover over the last 15 months before LuLu died. Her compelling film chronicles how the two women test the limits of their bond and take on life's ultimate adventure, shedding old presumptions and values while adopting new ones in the process. Reflective, intensely honest, and surprisingly humorous, this unforgettable documentary makes life’s last journey accessible in ways rarely seen before on screen.

    The LuLu Sessions is the winner of 10 international awards, including the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Chicago LGBT Film Festival; the winner of the Best Documentary Feature and the Emerging Filmmaker Award at the DC Asian Pacific American Film Festival; the winner of the Emerging Director Award at the New York Asian American International Film Festival; the winner of the Special Jury Award at the San Diego Asian Film Festival; Second Place in Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Toronto LGBT Film Festival; the Opening Night Film at the Austin LGBT Film Festival; and has been nominated for 4 Grand Jury Awards.

    Reviewers call it “bold, raging, confident,” “intensely magical, “ “inexplicable beauty, calmness, clarity and truth.” “unforgettable ... full of passion and spitfire.” Variety predicts “Asian and LGBT festivals will line up for this audience puller.” LA Weekly calls it a “Must-see” documentary!”
