The Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC), Embassy of Japan is pleased to once again participate in the EuroAsia Shorts film festival!EuroAsia Shorts proudly presents a selection of short films from Europe, Asia, and the United States screened at embassies and cultural centers throughout Washington, D.C.
The theme is men, women, and the challenges of relating to one another. In both familial and romantic relationships, as well as society in general, it is not always easy to connect, communicate, and truly live in happiness and harmony across the sexes. This year's selection of films explores that universal struggle and the underlying thought processes of men and women from different countries. Each evening's screening will serve as a springboard for a lively discussion following the films.
The complete schedule is available at euroasiashorts.com.
