Film Series: Colossal

2017. Canada/Spain. Dir: Nacho Vigalondo. With Anne Hathaway. 110 min.

After her boyfriend evicts her over her alcoholism, Hathaway returns to her childhood home and falls back into damaging patterns with an old friend. Concurrently – perhaps relatedly? – a giant monster appears to be destroying Seoul, South Korea. Hathaway must consider whether her bad behavior is affecting more than herself in this Kaufman-esque kaiju fable about toxic relationships.

Opening and Gallery Talk: “Light of the East” Exhibition

light of the east exhibitionFrom the CFA and the Center for East Asian Studies:

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.

A luncheon buffet will be served following the gallery talk by Curator Patrick Dowdey.

Date: Wednesday, February 3
Time: 12-1 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
