1984. Spain. Dir: Pedro Almodóvar. With Carmen Maura. 101 min.
Almodóvar turns his flamboyantly perverse eye to a zany dysfunctional family: a pill-addled cleaning lady tries to maintain her sanity despite a letter-forging husband, a lizard-loving mother-in-law, a drug-dealing son, and another son she sells to a pedophile dentist.

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.
Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
