This week we step outside of Rafe's comfort zone and take a look at Princess Mononoke, Hayao Miyazaki's beautiful animated feature that explores the dangers of ecological abuse and colonialism. How relevant is this film's message and what are the dangers we risk if we ignore them? What are the benefits to presenting a story in a balanced fashion instead of sticking to a more traditional narrative? And how does Miyazaki respond to the idea of having his lengthy stories cut down for American audiences? Listen as we dive into these topics, thanks to newcomer Kat Milliner.
