The screening on Thu 20 Aug will be introduced by Steve Henderson, editor at Skwigly Online Animation Magazine.
While their mother recovers from an illness, Satsuki and her little sister Mei get away from it all in an idyllic rural retreat. Far from the bustle of the city, they discover a mysterious place of spirits and magic, and the friendship of the Totoro woodland creatures. Conceived as a family film devoid of conflict and suffused with the joy of country living, My Neighbor Totoro is a masterpiece for the whole family, uniting the unique vision of Hayao Miyazaki with a feel-good tale of childlike wonder and true originality.
The screening on Sat 15 Aug is dubbed in English. The screening on Thu 20 Aug is in Japanese with English subtitles.
