Documentary screening: “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail” 5 pm Monday, September 17, 2018; BioScience Research Collaborative Auditorium 6500 South Main Street Room 103 Houston, TX 77030

Dear CADAH members,
Thank you to Dr. Helen Li and her friend Ms. Katherine Shen for sharing this invitation from the Chao Center for Asian Studies of Rice University regarding the screening of the Oscar nominated documentary “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail” on Mon, 9/17. 
 
This event is to be held as part of the Liu Distinguished Visitor Series where distinguished visitors are invited to campus to discuss a topic of broad humanistic interest. 
Following the financial crisis of 2008, only a single bank in America was indicted for alleged wrongdoing: Abacus Federal Savings, a small community bank serving Manhattan’s Chinatown. The Academy Award-nominated documentary Abacus: Small Enough to Jail, directed by Steve James, chronicles Abacus’ prosecution—a conspicuous one, given the lack of indictments for much-larger banks who had admitted to worse crimes. The film examines the effect of the trial on founder Thomas Sung; his daughter, President and CEO Jill Sung; and the rest of their family, as well as on New York’s Chinese community as a whole.
 
Rice University’s Chao Center for Asian Studies presents a free screening of Abacus along with a reception and Q&A with the Sung family, on Monday, September 17, as part of the Frank and Cindy Liu Distinguished Visitor Series. Eddie Allen, CFA; Senior Partner of Eagle Global Advisors, LLC, and Chairman of the Board of Asia Society Texas Center; will moderate the Q&A. Join us at the BioScience Research Collaborative (BRC) Auditorium, conveniently located just outside of Rice campus, at 5 PM, for this very special event. Paid parking is available underneath the BRC, accessible from Dryden Road.
