Studio Ghibli: The Art of Japanese Animation

Japan’s Studio Ghibli has produced two of its country’s biggest selling films ever, yet remains largely unknown outside its homeland. With animated features that range from children’s fables to mega-hit eco-warrior tales, Ghibli is revered for its high production values and morally complex narratives. Fans include John Lasseter (TOY STORY) Akira Kurosawa, and Jonathan Ross. The season continues next month with the hugely popular PRINCESS MONONOKE, MY NEIGHBOUR TOTORO, and THE CRIMSON PIG.Unless otherwise noted, all films are in Japanese with English subtitles.
