On Tuesday\, Ma rch 13\,&nbsp\;9:00 p.m.&nbsp\;at the Hungry Brain (2319 W.&nbsp\;Belmont) Homeroom and the Japanese American Service Committee (JASC) present a one -night apocalypse of sight\, sound\, and fury.

Godzilla was at once comfort to a nation in mour ning as well as confrontation with the dawning of the Atomic Age. Mayo wil l trace out the direct influence of the&nbsp\;U.S.&nbsp\;occupation of&nbs p\;Japan\, the H-bomb\, and modernity as "foreign pathology" on the genesi s of Godzilla\, as well as the continuing mutation of our hero/horror in p opular global culture.
