Miss Hokusai Film Screening (Ashley Square Cinemas) -- Film Studies Film Series
Add to Calendar7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Ashley Square Cinemas. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by Asian Studies.
As all of Edo (present day Tokyo) flocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai in this sumptuously animated coming-of-age tale, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently inside his studio. Her masterful portraits – sold under the name of her father – are coveted. Despite her fiercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering influence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art. #TalksAndArts

Whose Streets? Film Showing
Add to Calendar7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. This is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.
This event is free and open to the public. Small refreshments will be served.
