  • IU Cinema: Kamikaze Girls

    3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
    12-11-2016
    The Indiana University Cinema is located at 1213 E. 7th Street, Bloomington, Indiana.

    Adapted from the famed light novel written by Novela Takemoto (and later adapted to manga), Kamikaze Girls gives the coming-of-age drama a cult-fashion spin. Showcasing the ways in which countercultural fashion can profoundly impact the lives of its adherents, the film displays two young J-Pop talents, Kyoko Fukada and Anna Tsuchiya, in undreamt-of levels of a pastel hued, pop-cultural potpourri. In Japanese with English subtitles. (HD Presentation)

Before taking the NEH chairmanship, Mr. Cole was Distinguished Professor of Art History and Professor of Comparative Literature at Indiana University in Bloomington. In 2008, he received the President’s Medal from the University for “excellence in service, achievement and teaching.” In 2006, Governor Mitch Daniels awarded Mr. Cole the Sagamore of the Wabash, which recognizes individuals who have brought distinction to the state of Indiana.
