BACK WITH THE WIND: MIYAZAKI, TAKAHATA AND THE MASTERS OF STUDIO GHIBLI
Double Feature!
KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE / PORCO ROSSO
KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE
MAJO NO TAKKYUBIN
1989, GKIDS, 102 min, Japan, Dir: Hayao Miyazaki

From legendary director Hayao Miyazaki comes the beloved story of a resourceful young witch who uses her broom to create a delivery service, only to lose her gift of flight in a moment of self-doubt. It is tradition for all young witches to leave their families on the night of a full moon and set out into the wide world to learn their craft. When that night comes for Kiki, she embarks on her life journey with her chatty black cat, Jiji, landing the next morning in a seaside village, where a bakery owner hires her to make deliveries. Rarely has the animator’s art been so brilliantly rendered as in this delightfully imaginative film - a beautiful and timeless story of a young girl finding her way in the world.


PORCO ROSSO
1992, Studio Ghibli, 94 min, Japan, Dir: Hayao Miyazaki

This unsung treasure from Hayao Miyazaki nestles a tale of morality and identity inside a soaring tribute to early aviation and the reckless flyboys whose home was the open sky. Set in a mid-WWII Italy swept by fascism, the film follows Marco, a world-weary flying ace turned bounty hunter, who plies his trade above the waters of the Adriatic. Somewhere along the way a curse has transformed Marco’s head into that of a pig, reflecting his loss of faith in humanity. Marco meets his polar opposite in the innocent and energetic 17-year-old Fio, an aspiring airplane designer, and the two are catapulted into an airborne adventure pursued by air pirates, the Italian army and an egotistical American flying ace.


Screening format: 35mm | Both films in Japanese with English subtitles.
