Homeroom and the Japanese American Service Committee present
Godzilla 101: Birth of an Atomic Monster
Godzilla returns! On Tuesday, March 13, 9:00 p.m. at the Hungry Brain (2319 W. Belmont) Homeroom and the Japanese American Service Committee (JASC) present a one-night apocalypse of sight, sound, and fury. Join Homeroom hosts and Dr. Larry Mayo, professor of anthropology at DePaulUniversity, for a look at the radioactive origins of the world's most caustic monster risen from the ashes of the U.S.devastation of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Bikini Atoll. Godzilla was at once comfort to a nation in mourning as well as confrontation with the dawning of the Atomic Age. Mayo will trace out the direct influence of the U.S. occupation of Japan, the H-bomb, and modernity as "foreign pathology" on the genesis of Godzilla, as well as the continuing mutation of our hero/horror in popular global culture. Is Godzilla friend or foe? Is he to be understood-OR DESTROYED!?
The night features special guests, slide-shows and screenings (including excerpts from Kim Jong-il's "Godzilla" movie), plus monstrous J-Rock curated by Laurel Fujisawa.
