Tapestries of Apocalypse: From Angers to 'Nausicaa' and Beyond

When: Mon., March 25 2013

Animator Hayao Miyazaki has been part of producing brilliant and beautiful films since the early '60s. Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke (which won Japan's Academy Award equivalent) and Spirited Away are just a few that have piqued my interest — in particular for his smart and scrappy young female protagonists. Today Colorado College (coloradocollege.edu) hosts not one but two free Miyazaki-related events. At the first, from 11:15 a.m. to noon, Tufts University academic Susan Napier will present "Tapestries of Apocalypse: From Angers to 'Nausicaa' and Beyond," which includes her ongoing research on the man and his works, in Armstrong Theatre (14 E. Cache la Poudre St.). The second is a 4 p.m. showing of his 2008 film Ponyo, in the Cornerstone Arts Center Screening Room (825 N. Cascade Ave.). — Kirsten Akens
