DESCRIPTION

We'll wrap up Pasadena's most innovative new lecture series with a signature pairing of intriguing speakers and unexpected discoveries. Series returns in October.

Joe Rhode, Vice President of Walt Disney Imagineering will discuss the creation of the thrill ride "Expedition Everest". An attraction, while ostensibly a thrill ride, conveys such a convincing and detailed portrayal of Himalayan culture that it has been used as an educational tool for the real Nepal.

Ewan Chung and Charles Kim are co-producers and performers in the award-winning sketch comedy troupe OPM (Opening People's Minds). They will discuss sketch comedy as a tool for storytelling and political activism, as well as their thoughts on the role of Asian-American artists vis-à-vis mainstream media.
