We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?



The monsoon-strength changes blowing through Asia link the episodes of Southern Winds, an anthology film by four directors: In Mirage, a young Indonesian woman is disillusioned by urban life; Aliwan Paradise is a black comedy about establishing a Ministry of Entertainment in Manila; a Bangkok business executive visits his birthplace in Tree of Life; and in Tokyo Game a Japanese retiree becomes obsessed with a video game. At 7 p.m. today and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Freer Gallery’s Meyer Auditorium, 12th & Jefferson Dr. SW. FREE. (202) 357-1300. (Mark Jenkins)
