    A phantom thief is on the loose, and his explosive capers are

    knocking out lights all over town! His target? A priceless

    Russian heirloom people are dying to get their hands on. Pint-sized gumshoe Conan Edogawa is on the case, but there's more

    to this mystery than meets the eye. Nothing is what it seems:

    the good guys seem bad, the bad guys seem good, and not even

    the boy detective knows who to trust. There's no room for error

    when life and limb are on the line, and Conan's going to need

    help if he wants to unmask the Last Wizard of the Century!

    Based on the award-winning Detective Conan manga and

    anime series, Cased Closed: The Last Wizard of the Century is

    an action-packed mystery the whole family will enjoy solvingtogether.

    When South Korea was bidding to host the 2002 Winter

    Olympics, the challenge was great-including building a ski

    jump team from scratch in order to remain credible. Take

    Off, inspired by a true story, follows an unlikely team of

    misfits and their coach as they strive to be taken seriously.

    The team eventually competes in the 1998 Winter Olympics

    in Nagano, Japan, but if they are to have even a chance at

    greatness, they must first overcome their own differences

    and unite as a team. Written and directed by Yong-hwa Kim,

    Take Off was a huge box office success in Korea in 2009,winning over audiences with its combination of humor,

    indomitable team spirit, and thrilling ski jump

    cinematography. It was filmed in Pyeongchang, South

    Korea, which was recently announced as the host of the

    2018 Winter Olympics--the first Olympic Games to be held in

    Korea since the landmark 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics.

    Doors open at 6:00 pm for a light Korean reception. The screening(137 minutes) will begin at 6:30 pm. This event is part of the KoreanCultural Center's Korean Cinema Series, presenting free monthlyfilm screenings. All films are presented in Korean with Englishsubtitles.

    Around the world, poor women are responsible for finding water for their families and farms. Women and girls

    procuring water in conflict zones are frequently victims of violence. USAID and the Wilson Center are seeking to

    deepen the understanding of the root causes of conflict and the practical connections between gender-based

    vulnerability, water access, and conflict-affected areas. Join us as three experts share insights from field work and

    research on water access in conflict-affected areas and ways to build peace and stability through water projects.
