Join our online movie discussion club focusing on animated films from around the world and throughout history!

The Zoom invite will be emailed to registrants before the program.

This month marks our group's one year anniversary! Instead of an animated feature, this month's discussion topic will be The Kingdom of Dreams And Madness (2013), a documentary on Studio Ghibli, one of the world's most beloved animation production companies.  Watch it before the event, and then bring your thoughts and opinions to our lively discussion!  It is available for free with your library card on Hoopla:

Granted near-unfettered access to the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, director Mami Sunada follows the three men who are the lifeblood of Ghibli – the eminent director Hayao Miyazaki, the producer Toshio Suzuki, and the elusive and influential "other director" Isao Takahata – over the course of a year as the studio rushes to complete two films, Miyazaki's The Wind Rises and Takahata's The Tale of The Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare "fly on the wall" glimpse of the inner workings of one of the world's most celebrated animation studios, and an insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators.
