5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Student Panel on US-Japan Economic and Social Ties At this live event, hear students' perspectives on U.S.-Japan relations and business ties after spending eight days in Japan with the Kakehashi program.

The Japanese government created the Kakehashi program to strengthen the bonds between Japan and the U.S. through personal connections, business exchange and mutual understanding. The School was fortunate to be chosen in 2016 to participate in the annual program, which brings students from the U.S. to Japan to see the businesses, experience the culture and get to know the Japanese personally.

At this event, a group of Kakehashi participants will present their experiences, impressions and ideas for the future of U.S.-Japan relations. The students will particularly focus on the economic bridges that citizens of each country can build.

For anyone interested in Japan or international relations, this presentation and discussion will highlight many important facets of building constructive relationships with people and businesses abroad, in Japan and elsewhere.

5:00 PM Border Film Week The 2017 edition of Border Film Week brings together an inspiring collection of films that challenge us to rethink violence in Mexico, find reasons to be hopeful, and to imagine a world beyond our horizons. For more than a decade, the Trans-Border Institute has organized an annual festival showcasing the best short and feature-length films about the border, Mexico, and the relationship between the U.S. and its southern neighbors. Believing in the transformative power of visual media to break through stagnated debates and open new dialogues, TBI created Border Film Week to engage students, educators, and the community through powerful films about important regional issues. These films, and the panel discussions with artists and scholars that follow them, promote visual literacy and reflection at a time when the accessibility of cellphone cameras and social media has meant that the tools for storytelling are more widely available than the skills to interpret and understand.

Film Schedule:
Tuesday, February 7
5:00 PM Juan Perros (2016)
Forsaking the society that cast him and his animals aside, Juan finds life in the solitude and peace that rests among the ruins of our culture.

Mexican Dream/ Sueño Mexicano (2015) This documentary is about indigenous Mixtec immigrants from a remote pueblo in the Oaxaca who travel to Austin, Minnesota, to work for iconic meatpacking companies.
