The Continuing Allure of Hayao Miyazaki

Mon., Sept. 15, 4 p.m.
510-642-3415
The Continuing Allure  of Hayao Miyazaki
Anime may never be as big here as it is in Japan, but there’s something about the whimsical tales in the films of Japanese cinematic visionary Hayao Miyazaki that have won over the hearts of mainstream America. Movies such as 1999’s Princess Mononoke and 2002’s Spirited Away have made Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli an internationally recognized producer of anime classics. But few people realize that the idolized director and animator has also published a series of interviews and essays (many illustrated) that total more than nine hundred pages. These include Miyazaki’s musings regarding his own work and essays on philosophy and religion. In August 2009 and April 2014, San Francisco’s Viz Media published English translations of these texts in two volumes: Starting Point: 1997-1996 and Turning Point: 1997-2008, respectively. The two large books provide a literary retrospective of the auteur’s career — and with appropriate timing, as Miyazaki announced his retirement in December 2013. Beth Cary and Frederik Schodt, the translators of the volumes, will be at UC Berkeley (180 Doe Library, Berkeley) on Monday to share their in-depth knowledge of Miyazaki’s work, and speculate on how it manages to appeal to wide-reaching, cross-cultural audiences. Books will also be available for sale at the event. Free

Win Tickets to The Stylistics at Yoshi's Oakland!

Monday, Sept. 15th
8:00pm & 10:00 pm
510-238-9200
Win Tickets to The Stylistics at Yoshi's Oakland!
Following the success of The O'Jays, The Spinners and The Delfonics, the City of Brotherly Love has just enough room for another highly successful soul group. That group came in the form of The Stylistics. The Stylistics, with their charisma, style and harmony, evolved into one of the best-selling soul groups ever, as the Philadelphia-based quartet, recorded a remarkable 10 straight-top ten hits during the early 1970's.

What started as the innocent union of two ex-high school bands, developed into one of the longest standing, most accomplished soul bands to grace the R&B scene. They continue to perform as only they can, bringing with them the sweet, soulful memories of year's past.
