Each hour-long family-friendly program will look at one of Miyazaki’s classic feature-length films through the prism of Eastern and Western culture and philosophy. The presentations will additionally showcase rare and seldom-seen images from the NYPL Digital Collections and reading recommendations from our circulating collections
Howl’s Moving Castle
A young hatter, a prima donna wizard, a demon in a fireplace, mysterious curse: all of these and more join to create the narrative of one of Miyazaki’s most complex films. Multiple interpretations exist, so sign up if you’d like to hear how Miyazaki uses unorthodox structure to make commentary magic and the power of dreams.
