Detach your body, let go of your mind, and experience the original Ghost in the Shell in a brand new way. With help from our resident Japanese animation researcher Adam Dobay, learn how the cult classic is actually a Buddhist parable on how to reach enlightenment.
In this talk, independent film researcher Adam Dobay places a number of films on the spectrum between Thelma & Louise and Mad Max: Fury Road, and looks at how each have tried to break out of the pigeonhole of the “woman with gun” trope while asking whether there is now an opportunity to embed new stories about gender roles in our reality.
