A WINTER WITH STUDIO GHIBLI
It’s going to be a cozy winter in LAB111 because this December the whole Ghibli gang returns to our cinema – to coincide with the release of Hayao Miyazaki’s final film The Boy And The Heron – with fifteen films from the visionary and dizzyingly original Japanese animation giant.
The Ghibli films have a massive range in subject matter and genre, but certain themes return time and again in these animated stories; strong female leads, magical transformative creatures and the ever-perpetuating desire to take to the skies. But whichever Ghibli title you encounter, the love for the craft and the creation of fantastically immersive worlds shines through in every frame of the hand-drawn animation, inviting the viewer’s inner child to take center stage in the experience. All films will be presented in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.
Please note the screening of Princess Mononoke on Wednesday, December 20th at 20:30 will be followed by a live recording of our Celebrating Cinema podcast. Join us and let’s talk, on air, about Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki’s amazing ecological fable Princess Mononoke!
