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 Fujikawa, who 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.
