  • Containing Ebola: Lessons From the Fukushima Crisis

    2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Walker Building
    Iwasaki Library, White Room

    In 2011, a massive earthquake triggered a tsunami and a nuclear disaster in Japan. During the months that followed, the world watched as Japan rapidly rebuilt its infrastructure while standing at the brink of a nuclear meltdown. By using social media effectively, the US Embassy in Tokyo played a crucial role in calming fears and coordinating relief.

    Suzanne Basalla was the US Ambassador's chief advisor during the earthquake crisis. She will discuss the lessons learned from the Fukushima disaster that could be used to help stop contagion over ebola.

    Basalla launched the TOMODACHI Initiative in the months after the earthquake. It is one of the most successful public diplomacy partnerships being used to solidify the US-Japan Relationship. She continues to oversee the project as the COO of the U.S.-Japan Council. Basalla has also been the Japan Country Director for the Department of Defense, the China Country Director for the National Security Council and a US Naval Officer.

  • Bright Lights: Only Lovers Left Alive

    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.

    Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit, despairs about human civilization's decline, and worries about future survival. Eve, who is perhaps 3000 years old to Adam's 500, takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side.

    As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish. Eve's close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare's plays—Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price.

    Adam and Eve's precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn't yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam.

    Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.
