The viewing and discussion will be held at the Student Center Kiva on Monday, April 9th, 2018 at 6:00pm. Admission is free, but Registration is required (HERE).

The Valley explores the struggle of one family to survive intact amidst a culture in which relationships and human connection are almost impossible to maintain. It is the story of an Indian American entrepreneur Neal Kumar who resides in the high octane, technologically driven culture that is Silicon Valley. His ambitions, affluent life appears idyllic from the exterior, however, when his daughter Maya tragically commits suicide, the fractured nature of his interior life becomes apparent to himself and those around him.
