There’s no better way to get into the Halloween spirit than with a special screening of what’s been called “the most terrifying movie ever made!” — director Dario Argento’s giallo-infused, “candy-colored,” phantasmagoric nightmare of a horror classic Suspiria. Even better? Suspiria has been lovingly restored and remastered for its fortieth anniversary! Buoyed by a phenomenal soundtrack from the Italian band Goblin, Suspiria is “nightmare fuel” for the senses — and only truly enjoyed on the big screen… If you dare!…

Thus, poetic inspiration has been often identified with this entirely individual creative process, an idea that is still widely accepted today, especially in the context…

Dam Management

November 1, 2017, 11:30 AM

Dr. Kristin Vekasi will present the annual Leeke-Shaw Lecture on International Affairs. Japan’s postwar constitution prohibits the country’s use of force as a way of settling international disputes.
