The Apocalyptic Imagination Of Hayao Miyazaki 

When: Thu., Oct. 4, 5:30 p.m. 2012

Filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki creates instantly enchanting fictional realms informed by a nuanced environmental vision. In animated masterpieces such as Princess Mononoke, Miyazaki sets the complex relationship between nature and humans who need to live off its resources against the resilience of that system of exchange. Susan Napier, a professor of Japanese language and literature at Tufts University, explores the director's oeuvre in a talk titled "Fire and Water: The Apocalyptic Imagination of Hayao Miyazaki" as part of the Ackland Museum's "Season of Japan" series of exhibitions and events spanning the fall and winter. The talk will be followed by a 7 p.m. screening of Isao Takahata's 1988 classic Grave of the Fireflies. Admission is free. —Chris Vitiello
