28: Still Fucked Up - Solo Performance Judy Lei Wed May 8th 8pm

28: Still Fucked Up Solo Performance by Judy Lei Being 28 is the most sensitive age ever. Are you engaged, married, have kids, have a stable well-paying job, debt-free, in good health, AND own a home? No? Then you’re probably fucked.  If you think back to when you were still in college, everybody had an idea of what they’re doing with their lives after graduation. Except for me. I didn’t have a job lined up. I was deeply passionate about social justice, until I worked in community organizing and hit a wall.

In the Cinevue Artist Spotlight

I don’t call myself an artist even though I like art a lot, but I’m in the “Artist Spotlight”. Thanks Judy Lei CV:   If there was one superpower the GIANT ROBOT can have, what would it be? EN:  Our big bot is not a superhero.  Rather, it is in the same ranks as a human being.  If you look at it, all of them are named after regular human beings:  the police officer, the fireman, the teacher, etc. just normal day-to-day people.  We try to throw in some different element in it, like the Men In Black and pink ranger, but people don’t know that.  In the end, all characters are created by human beings.
