We celebrate the 30th anniversary of Studio Ghibli with our most comprehensive survey yet of its animated films, beginning with a double feature of the studio's latest WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE and a 20th anniversary screening of gentle coming-of-age drama WHISPER OF THE HEART.
Join us in the Spielberg Theatre for the first-ever Women Underground event and watch awesome films that are way too wacky, gory, sick, crazy, strange, weird, twisted, odd or insane to show at mainstream film festivals.
Retro Format returns with a special evening devoted to cross-dressing in silent film. Titles will include Edison’s “Old Maid in a Drawing Room” (1900, 8 min.), “The Danger Girl” (1916, 18 min.) and “Miss Fatty's Seaside Lovers” (1915, 11 min.) and more!
What may be the final film from Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata is one of the studio’s very best - 2013 gorgeous watercolor fantasy THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA. It's paired with the classic PRINCESS MONONOKE, Miyazaki’s epic story of conflict and balance between humans, gods and nature that broke box office records in Japan upon its 1997 release.
This first of many triumphs for Hayao Miyazaki was NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND, in which Princess Nausicaä must unite her people against the threat of annihilation a thousand years after a nuclear holocaust has gutted the globe. It's followed by the animated fantasy TALES FROM EARTHSEA, inspired by writer Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea series.
