The Asian Film Series screens a kung fu film, a musical, and a spy thriller, to examine cultural identity, political anxiety, and visual representation

Kung Fu Hustle
is either a trashy, non-sensical comedy or a clever postmodern work that comments on Hong Kong - China relations.  Shiri is the name of a species of freshwater fish indigenous to the DMZ, and expresses the director's hope for the reunification of a divided Korea.  Jodhaa Akbar is a sixteenth century love story between a great Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodha. 

*Free food, free admission and prizes!

The Asian Film Series is presented by the Barbara and Richard M. Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies in conjunction with the College of Arts & Sciences Dean's Office.
