On Screen/In Person Film Series: Mr. Cao Goes to Washington
Taylor Little Theatre
Sunday Nov. 17, 2013 – 2 p.m.

Mr. Cao Goes to Washington is an engaging portrait of a complex individual navigating the fascinating, high stakes world of electoral politics, New Orleans style. What happens when the naiveté of a political rookie clashes with the realities of racial politics of the American South and ultra-partisan struggles in Washington DC? Follow the unexpected journey of Rep. Joseph Cao–the first Vietnamese American elected to the US Congress, the only non-white House Republican of the 111th Congress, and the only Republican to vote for President Obama’s Health Care Reform Bill.

The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A following the film. The On Screen/In Person Series is made possible by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.

$6 for adults, $5 for students/seniors, $4 for president's card holders and $1 for Mercyhurst students (with ID)
