Sunday Platform - Ethics and the Theater: Disney and Fujikawa

Sunday, August 26, 2018 - 11:00am
Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

A special edition of Ethics and Theater presents Disney and Fujikawa by Lloyd Suh.

Lloyd Suh’s tale is of a 1942 wartime meeting between two very different cartoonists, Walt Disney and the Japanese-American illustrator Gyo Fukikawa, who actually did artwork for the Disney company. An uncomfortable conversation on power, personal responsibility, and the art of animation ensues — at a time of great uncertainty and national crisis.

Following the reading, Dick Van Deusen will lead a short discussion of the ethical issues raised in the play.

This week’s shared charity is the Fourth Universal Society/Sanctuary Program
