Studio Ghibli’s Cultural Impact – Part 1

May 22, 2021 at 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm IST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

In this new 4-part InterIntellect salon miniseries, Tanya Raj will lead deep-dive discussions on Studio Ghibli movies and how it has brought together people across generations.

Watch the movies on Netflix and come nerd out all you like. Nerding is good, nerding is encouraged!

Originating from a tiny strip of land known as the Land of Rising Sun – Japan – Studio Ghibli has captured the imagination of generations, like no other media house has been able to do.

What is it that makes these movies so endearing and immersive? How has it made such a deep connection with cultures across the world? Why does it evoke such charm that entices millions, every single time? Is it awe, wonder, playfulness, or a mix of it all?

Come join me on this journey as we talk and have fun with the masterpieces that have graced us in this lifetime!
