4:00 PM Conference: Feminist World-Building in Japanese Cinema Across the production, criticism and scholarship of Japanese cinema, there remains startlingly little feminist work. We might attribute this to who controls the means of cinematic production in the Japanese film industry, to Japan's starkly gendered division of labor, to the limitations on film content that these structural conditions reproduce, to the flows that gender film audiences, or to the systems that assign value with the academy, privileging certain narratives, actors, voices, etc. Whatever the calculus, in Japanese cinema as elsewhere, we have arrived at a moment of what Sara Ahmed recently described as feminist snap, that breaking point when she[/we/you/I] just can't take it anymore and when feminist work seems more necessary than ever. Interested as much in film practice as film criticism, theory and scholarship, we ask: what are feminisms in the context of Japanese cinema? What, now, can feminist knowledges help us address or even rectify in Japanese cinema? What might they be insufficient to address? What prompts a split between the study of gender and sexuality in Japanese cinema and a feminist politic? What forms of intersectionality, transnationality, and comparison does a feminist take on Japanese cinema necessitate? We invite you to join us in an exercise of creative and affirmative world-building (Ahmed) in, through, and with Japanese cinema.

8:00 PM Music: Steel Pulse Steel Pulse may have explored various styles of music since they started out in 1975, but when it comes to the message, the UK's Grammy - Winning reggae band has remained close to their roots. The Group have continued their commitment to fighting injustice, educating the masses, and promoting positive messages through spiritually uplifting music.

"We just can't ignore the politics, because every life and soul that's born on this earth is a political maneuver for someone, at some stage", Hinds explains. "From a spiritual aspect, it's really an upliftment through facing reality - what's out there. We deal with positive spirits. It means putting aside the guns, the drugs and all of the things that are ailments of society - especially the black communities right now".

Steel Pulse have always taken their causes to heart, filing a $1 million class action lawsuit against New York City's Taxi & Limousine Commission. The group charged that cabbies refused to pick up blacks and Rastafarians throughout the streets of New York. Ages: 21+

Admission/Cos: $57 - $62
