"The fantasy worlds of anime so strongly represent our hopes and yearnings. They illustrate a world of lost possibilities for us." - Hayao Miyazaki
We invite you to the September episode of Dialogues with Cinema. And this month we enter the world of Japanese animation. The discussion will cover anime series and films.
"Good cinema does more than entertain or fill seats at the cinema. It has the power to change hearts and minds and sometimes society more widely."
The idea of Dialogues with Cinema is to bring together a group of people with a taste of quality cinema. In this event the participants would discuss, share and exchange information about good movies from the selected genre. As a participant, you do not have to be a scholar in the movies, you just want to share, enjoy or build your knowledge about good movies.
It will be a 3 hour informal and engaging event where we divide time amongst participants who wish to share their favourite movie from the selected genre with the group.
Genre for September episode: Anime
Charges: INR 150 for regular customer, INR 100 for students. It includes one drink complimentary at Dialogues Cafe.
