Images Cinema and the Williams College Museum of Art, in tandem with the exhibition "Repro Japan: Technologies of Popular Visual Culture," are hosting three free screenings of Japanese anime films throughout the run of the exhibition. The first in the series is "Weathering With You," a 2019 Japanese animated romantic fantasy film, which will screen on Monday, November 22, at 7:30 p.m.
Learn about some of the ways Japanese visual culture has been reproduced and transformed across media and through time—from woodblock printing to 19th century photography to contemporary cosplay—with "Repro Japan" exhibition co-curators Christopher Bolton, Williams College Professor of Comparative and Japanese Literature; Eron Rauch, artist and critic; and Maggie Wu, MA '19, PhD candidate at the University of California, San Diego. The curators will look closely at some of the works on view while discussing their collaborative process and taking audience questions.
Join Kameelah Janan Rasheed, whose site-specific installation "Worshipping at the Altar of Certainty" is on view at the Williams College Museum of Art, for a conversation with exhibition co-curators Mallory Cohen MA '20, Nidhi Gandhi MA '20, and Elyse Mack MA '20. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the program.
