High school students are invited to a special film screening of a series of short propaganda animation films made in prewar and wartime Japan (1920s-40s), followed by a panel discussion. Students will explore the symbolic meaning of Japan’s folktales and classic animal characters as they are used in these films, while drawing comparisons with western propaganda images and films. Recommended for high school social studies classes.
Free admission. Open to high school groups only. For school group reservations, please call (212) 715-1254 by Friday, February 1, 2008.
