There will be a free Hayao Miyazaki movie marathon in the Glasshouse this Friday, February 13th, at 6pm. There will be free food and drinks for all students willing to participate in this event sponsored by Reinhardt’s Anime club. For those of who are not familiar with Miyazaki or his work, all are still encouraged to join in on the screening.
Hayao Miyazaki was born in 1941 and is a Japanese film director, manga artist, animator, producer, screenwriter, and founder of Studio Ghibli. His name is recognized in both Japan and America for the care and detail he and his writers put into their story telling. Unlike the stigma attached to much of anime, his work is known for being appropriate for all age groups. Miyazaki recently announced his retirement from making films, inspiring the Reinhardt Anime club to have an event showcasing his contributions to animated filmmaking.
