4:00 PM Seminar: Beautiful Country and the Middle Kingdom Drawing on personal letters, diaries, memoirs, government documents and contemporary news reports, John Pomfret reconstructs the surprising, tragic and marvelous ways Americans and Chinese have engaged with one another through the centuries.

A fascinating and thrilling account, The Beautiful Country and the Middle Kingdom: America and China, from 1776 to the Present is also an indispensable book for understanding the most important—and often the most perplexing―relationship between any two countries in the world.

4:00 PM Film: Temple Nagaswaram Join filmmaker Soudhamini Narayanan and UC San Diego Music Professor Kartik Seshadri, for a viewing and discussion on Temple Nagaswaram, a December 2013 film based on a musical instrument used in South Indian temples as part of ritual worship. Even the making of the instrument has its own myths and rituals.

Musically, the Nagaswaram tradition is also the forerunner of the entire classical Carnatic—music tradition of South India. Used in a ritual context in temples, it creates an interesting understanding of the intimate relation between space and sound.

7:00 PM Film: Arrangiarsi When Matteo's life falls apart, he moves into his 1985 VW camper van and begins his odyssey. With a free ticket and nothing left to lose, he sets out on a journey to Naples in search of his father's heritage and even more—the secret of Neapolitan pizza.

From the street artists in Naples, Matteo discovers l'arte di arrangiarsi—the art of overcoming an obstacle and being resourceful. He is fascinated by how they "arrange," to make something out of nothing.

Matteo quickly learns that pizza is indeed a form of arrangiarsi—food of the poor, made simply of flour and water. His quest for their secret also becomes the metaphor that informs the themes of arrangiarsi and Matteo's own story.

This film is a passionate love story about heritage, family, Naples, following a dream, having the faith that Spirit takes care of you and the greatest pizza on earth. Troncone proves you can live your dream and leaves us wondering how we can "arrange" ours.
