Goro Miyazaki’s debut feature as a director is an epic adventure, adapted from the much-loved series of novels by Ursula K.Le Guin. It tells the story of Ged, the most powerful wizard in Earthsea, and his attempts to protect Prince Arren from the evil machinations of rival wizard Cob . Together with Therru, a young girl he rescued from slave takers, Arren must unite with Ged to defeat Cob and return balance to their world. Beautifully animated, Tales From Earthsea will enchant viewers of all ages and once again shows Studio Ghibli at the height of its powers.
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.
