On Film Style (1)


Spirited Away.

Week 23, 2008, at the University of Kent. This week’s lecture delivered by Dr. Catherine Grant for Introduction to Narrative Cinema 2: World Cinema is titled “Contemporary World Cinema Auteurism (1)”.

These are the aims of my seminar:

• look at the animated film and the singularity of Japanese animation;
• discuss Miyazaki as an animation auteur;
• examine the influences that inspired and the themes that structure Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi, 2001).
