GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES is a 1988 Japanese animated film written and directed by Isao Takahata and animated by Studio Ghibli.

Set in Japan during World War II, the film tells the story of Seita, a young boy who has to take care of his younger sister Setsuko when their mother dies. Based on a 1967 semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, it is commonly considered an anti-war film, but this interpretation has been challenged by some critics and by the director.

“An emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation.” – Roger Ebert

Showtimes:

Saturday (10/14): 7:30 p.m.
Sunday (10/15): 2:30 p.m.
Wednesday (10/18): 5:30 p.m.
Thursday (10/19): 7:30 p.m.

A harrowing but meticulously observed look at teenage lives in the era prior to the lives in the early 1990’s, “Super Dark Times” marks the feature debut of gifted director Kevin Phillips, whose critically acclaimed 2015 short film “Too Cool For School” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Zach (Owen Campbell) and Josh (Charlie Tahan) are best friends growing up in a leafy Upstate New York suburb in the 1990s, where teenage life revolves around hanging out, looking for kicks, navigating first love and vying for popularity.

When a traumatic incident drives a wedge between the previously inseparable pair, their youthful innocence abruptly vanishes. Each young man processes the tragedy in his own way, until circumstances grow increasingly complex and spiral into violence. Phillips dives headlong into the confusion of teenage life, creating an evocative atmosphere out of the murky boundaries between adolescence and adulthood, courage and fear, and good and evil.

“This generations MEAN CREEK or DONNIE DARKO…”
– Brad Miska, “Bloody Disgusting”

“When Cancer Calls…” a film by Wayne Beach, Ph.D
Oct 5 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

A STEM Translational Communication Center public event

The STCC in collaboration with the UF Health Cancer Center & Cancer Population Sciences, UF HealthStreet, and The Center for Arts in Medicine proudly present “When Cancer Calls…”  a unique film by Dr. Wayne Beach, a Professor in the School of Communication at the San Diego State University, an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Surgery, and a Member of the Moores UCSD Cancer Center, University of California, San Diego. He is also a faculty member on the UCSD/SDSU Joint Doctoral Program in Public Health.

The film will start at 6 p.m. followed by a brief coffee break, and will conclude with a talk-back session where you will have the opportunity to ask questions to Dr. Beach.  Click here  to reserve your complementary ticket!

Description

A family. A diagnosis. A phone call. One family’s journey through cancer…

A unique and powerful educational resource for patients, family members, medical professionals, and all persons whose lives have somehow been touched by cancer.

Adapted from the award-winning book, “A Natural History of Family Cancer,” the conversations portrayed in “When Cancer Calls…” are drawn from the only known recordings in the history of the social and medical sciences between an actual cancer patient and her family members. From diagnosis through death of a loved one (mother/wife/sister), these interactions – 61 phone calls over 13 months – are at once extraordinary, yet strikingly familiar, to all who have encountered them.
