Japan on Screen: Miss Hokusai
August 1, 2019
Meet us on Boyd Plaza for a Japanese film series curated by Dr. Yoshitaka Sakakibara, who taught Japanese film and culture for more than 20 years at USC. In celebration of Mimi Kato: Ordinary Sagas, these screenings touch on themes Kato brings to her artistic practice, including navigating gender roles and corporate culture. Bring your own lawn chairs or come early to snag one of our new pieces of inflatable furniture.
