This breathtaking adventure from Miyazaki tells the tale of Sheeta, a young orphan who holds a crystal from Laputa: a mythical land floating in the skies. She meets Pazu, a young boy who has been looking for Laputa, and together they try to save the magical land from the clutches of a government secret agent.
It’s going to be a magical summer in KINO when on July 1st we kick off our retrospective of no less than sixteen (16!) films from the visionary and dizzyingly original Japanese animation giant, Studio Ghibli. The Ghibli films have a great range in subject matter and even 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 and fly. But whichever Ghibli film you encounter, the love for the craft of hand drawn animation and the creation of fantastically immersive worlds shines through in every frame of their work, commanding the viewers inner child to take over. All films will be presented in original Japanese language with English subtitles.
