Cinema As Sanctuary series as well as working on some Super 8 and 16mm films inspired by her time in LA. Stop by and meet Kaori at an informal welcome reception at 7 pm before the Open Screen on Thursday, August 3!

Kaori Oda’s residency is made possible in part by the generous support of The Japan Foundation and Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

For my final dance scene post in my curatorial series, I chose the Pony dance scene from Magic Mike XXL because it’s low key one of the funnest movies I’ve scene in the theater in recent years and it’s summer, and it genuinely makes me happy. Enjoy!
