Cinnabar is a monthly film series designed around hospitality and curiosity. FILMS engage our full selves. They inspire, reveal, challenge, question, and enchant us. Cinnabar was born as a micro-ministry project of Kinfolk Young Adult Ministry and is still connected to our church in that way.
What do we do? Whenever we gather, the first thing we do is share food and drinks. Our host then offers an introduction and invitation to the film they chose and we watch together, whether under the stars or in front of a twenty-foot wall. Finally, we circle up to reflect together. Our one rule is we never say a film was good or bad; we just talk about the impressions it made on us.
Coming up on May 11th: Minari
I watched Minari a year ago, and it has not gotten out of my head. The film focuses on the Yi family who, much like my own, moved to the United States from another country with nothing but a whole lot of hope for their future. I saw so much of my own life on screen (something I rarely see as a first-generation American), and it was told in such a funny, profound, and moving way. To say it swept me away would be an understatement. But I truly think it has something for everyone, and I couldn’t be more excited to share this with you all.
