The Japanese Film Festival, as presented by the Center for East Asian Studies and Shofuso Japanese House and Garden is back for 2016!
This year’s theme is the depiction of princesses in film. Each film will be introduced by Penn faculty member, and specialist in religious studies, Jolyon Thomas.
We kick off this year with Studio Ghibli’s aptly named Princess Mononoke, which vividly depicts a young warrior’s involvement in a struggle between forest gods and the humans who use its resources.
Please note, these FREE events take place at 7pm each Wednesday in February in Cohen Hall room 402 on Penn’s campus.
The other films and dates are:
- Princess Raccoon, February 10th
- Samurai Princess: Gedo Hime, February 17th
- The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, February 24th
We hope to see you there!!!
