Join AnimeChicago at the Japanese Culture Center to celebrate the groundbreaking and cinematic storytelling of Mamoru Oshii. Known for his deeply philosophical and sweeping epics like Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor, and Urusei Yatsura, Oshii’s work is focuses on visual-storytelling and breathtaking action sequences. His works are credited with influencing Western directors such as James Cameron and The Wachowskis.
This event will feature different presentations of Oshii’s work including talks by Neil Clingerman, Jaclyn Salmon, and Dr. Brian Ruh, two Oshii enthusiasts and a published author working in the English language. We’ll view a few scenes from his major works and dive into what makes this eccentric director someone worth watching.
Proudly brought to you by AnimeChicago NFP, and The Japanese Culture Center.
Stay tuned for upcoming announcements on post-talk activities.
