5:00 PM Film: Raise the Umbrellas Acclaimed filmmaker Evans Chan screens and comments on his documentary "Raise the Umbrellas," its first full-length preview on the West Coast. Watch the trailer here.

The film explores the origin and impact of Hong Kong's 2014 pro-democracy demonstrations through the inter-generational lenses of three post-Tiananmen democratic activists alongside other cultural and social characters in the movements and pro-Beijing counter voices. Comprehensive and intimate, driven by stirring footage of a mega-metropolis riven by protest, the film lays bare the sheer political risk for post-colonial Hong Kong's universal-suffragist ambitions that reverberates across Greater China and democratic movements around the world.

Schedule:

4:30 PM Doors Open
5:00 PM Film Screening (Cantonese with English/Chinese subtitles)
7:00 PM Conversation and Q&A

Admission/Cost: FREE Registration required.

6:00 PM Talk: Pankaj Mishra, The Age of Anger: A History of the Present Please join USD Humanities Center and Warwick's books for a lecture by Pankaj Mishra. Mishra will discuss his most recent book - The Age of Anger: A History of the Present.

"How can we explain the origins of the great wave of paranoid hatreds that seem inescapable in our close-knit world?from American shooters and ISIS to Donald Trump, from a rise in vengeful nationalism across the world to racism and misogyny on social media? In Age of Anger, Pankaj Mishra answers our bewilderment by casting his gaze back to the eighteenth century before leading us to the present.

He shows that as the world became modern, those who were unable to enjoy its promises?of freedom, stability, and prosperity?were increasingly susceptible to demagogues. The many who came late to this new world?or were left, or pushed, behind?reacted in horrifyingly similar ways: with intense hatred of invented enemies, attempts to re-create an imaginary golden age, and self-empowerment through spectacular violence. It was from among the ranks of the disaffected that the militants of the nineteenth century arose?angry young men who became cultural nationalists in Germany, messianic revolutionaries in Russia, bellicose chauvinists in Italy, and anarchist terrorists internationally" (Amazon Book Review).

About Pankaj Mishra:

Mishra has written literary and political essays for The New York Times, the New York Review of Books, the Guardian, the London Review of Books, and the New Yorker, among other American, British, and Indian publications. In November 2012, Foreign Policy magazine named him one of the top 100 global thinkers

7:30 PM Stage: Anansi, The Story King UCSD Theatre presents an undergraduate production of Nadine Geojge-Graves' adaptation of the popular tale of Anansi. Anansi, the spider, wants to own all the stories in the world. Nyame, the sky god, has all the stories and is willing to give them to Anansi…for a steep price. When Sheri, the firefly, gets caught in Anansi's web, she quickly figures out how to help him on his quest (and perhaps save herself at the same time)! With Sheri's help, Anansi goes on a journey to find Nyame's three items. Along the way, he finds out a thing or two about himself and the ways in which we are all connected, like the complex tangle of a spider's web. An ensemble provides stories, music, singing and dancing as the two adventurers help Anansi fulfill his lifelong wish. Family friendly and for all ages! George-Graves directs.
