On this wonderful Tuesday, our Academy learned many things about symbolism in both movies and religion.
In the morning, we learned from the terrific Dr. Timothy Brown about religion in Japan. Our knowledge of culture and religion expanded to an understanding that is not solely Western-centric. To wind down for the night, we enjoyed our second Studio Ghibli movie, Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro). Kyle sensei provided insightful commentary throughout the movie which heightened the experience and gave a unique view of the planning that went into the movie.
