Studio Ghibli Retrospective 

When: June 19-27 2013
Price: $7-9

The huge success of last fall's screening of Studio Ghibli anime films at Carolina Theatre has led to a repeat performance, with two of the studio's Hayao Miyazaki-directed masterpieces, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and My Neighbor Totoro, presented in Japanese with English subtitles. (Totoro was previously dubbed into English for its Durham showing.) Other Ghibli films get rare theatrical showings in this festival, including Miyazaki's Porco Rosso, a tale of a (literally) pig-headed pilot with some breathtaking flying sequences. We also recommend for kids Kiki's Delivery Service, a gentle tale of a young witch who journeys to a small village where she makes new friends and becomes a broomstick-based courier. There's also the lesser-known Ghibli efforts Pom Poko (about raccoon spirits who fight against the destruction of their home by humans), Only Yesterday (a nostalgic coming-of-age piece) and the magical Whisper of the Heart, a favorite of such filmmakers as Terry Gilliam. Experience these masterpieces as they were meant to be seen.
