Studio Ghibli: Spirited Away (2001)

Hoezo in Kino

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.

A visionary work, winner of the 2001 best animated feature Oscar and the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival, Hayao Miyazaki’s stunning feature is one of his most universally appealing films. With its depth and complexity, the unique visuals, the dream-like spectacle, Spirited Away enchants both adults and children alike. Spirited Away tells the story of Chihiro’s adventures and struggles rescuing her parents from an evil witch by working in a bath house to the gods.
