Spirited Away


Date: Fri May 09 2003 - 15:01:35 PDT


With the craze of "Yugi-Oh" heavey in my school I did an art/reading lesson
on Japanese Anime for 4th and 5th graders.
Here in FLa we are down to the last two weeks of classes and with the
children bursting at the seams I wanted to show the animated film "Spirited
Away" which received the academy award for the best animated feature film for
this year. I was wondering if anyone saw it and if the students will enjoy
it? I haven't seen it yet myself and I was wondering if there is anything
inapropriate in the film?
Also the media (librarian) specialist was against it due to copy right laws.
Any thoughts on this? I feel as an elementary art teacher it is important to
keep up with the current trends in animation and children's art.
