This is the story of Ponyo, a little fish from the sea who struggles to realise her dream of living with a boy named Sosuke. It also tells of how five-year old Sosuke manages to keep a most solemn promise. Ponyo places Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid in a contemporary Japanese setting. It is a tale of childhood love and adventure – Hayao Miyazaki. The film encapsulates everything that makes the studio’s output so unique. Breathtaking animation combined with thrilling storytelling makes this another worthy addition to the Ghibli catalogue.
It’s going to be a magical summer in KINO. This summer we’re screening no less than sixteen films from the visionary and dizzyingly original Japanese animation giant, Studio Ghibli. Caste in the Sky is a breathtaking adventure from Miyazaki. It 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.
