Get Out: Bethesda Literary Festival
While the documentary “Bully” continues to make waves in the U.S. because of its brutal depiction of teenage bullying, 2011’s “Sunny” offers an alternative vision of surviving high school. This South Korean ensemble film follows Na-Mi, a rural teenage girl who moves to a big city and immediately finds herself the target of her savvier, more cultured peers. In the spirit of Judd Apatow’s “Freaks and Geeks,” however, Na-Mi finds salvation in the company of a group of similarly ostracized girls, a group of foul-mouthed rabble rousers called “Chun-Hwa.” With the encouragement of her new friends, Na-Mi finds that what was once her handicap — her provincial vocabulary — allows her to hurl new and unparalleled insults at her foes.
April 24 and 26 at the Freer and Sackler Gallery, Jefferson Drive at 12th Street Southwest
Exhibit: ‘Dissociative’ by Scotch!
When pundits talk about assimilating immigrant cultures, San Antonio’s Scotch! is probably not who they’re thinking of. He’s nevertheless a sparkling example of what the melting pot can give us. The Texas-based graffiti artist grew up on “Star Wars” and border state madness. Combining the two, along with themes from Mexican folk art and nods to the high life, is the focus of his new show at the Fridge. The result is hilarious and bizarre: a stormtrooper in a tuxedo holding up a glass of (you guessed it!) scotch, dapper detectives sporting gang bandanas (tied in the front, of course) and other dissociative combos.
Through April 29 at the Fridge, 516 Eighth St. SE
