If you’re bored with the rain, The American Museum of Natural History is hosting an exhibition of both Japanese and Indian popular culture this Saturday and Sunday, 4/17-18. That translates as a Bollywood/anime movie marathon Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
Eureka 7 will be screening on Sunday, and to add even more stimuli to the mix, Roland Kelts (Japanamerica) and Taeko Baba (New York-Tokyo) will be present to give a talk on Japan’s influence on American pop culture.
Screening on Sunday starting at noon, the talk starts at 2:30. I can’t think of two more qualified and informed speakers to cover this subject, so don’t be late.
