Part of our Hayao Miyazaki: A Studio Ghibli Retrospective series, taking place all through January.
â€śAn astounding animated feature â€¦ a modernistic sci-fi fable with a subtle ecological message and slam-bang Indiana Jones-style adventure. Itâ€™s a testament to Miyazaki's skill as both storyteller and animator.â€ť - Richard Harrington, Washington Post
Subtitled version only.
Donâ€™t miss this rare opportunity to see one of Hayao Miyazakiâ€™s most stunningly beautiful, exciting, and infrequently screened films. A young girl with a mysterious crystal pendant falls out of the sky and into the arms and life of young Pazu. Together they search for a floating island in the sky, site of a long-dead civilization promising enormous wealth and power to those who can unlock its secrets. Castle in the Sky is an early masterpiece of storytelling and filmmaking whose imaginative and ornately detailed vision presaged later Miyazaki films like Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. (Dir. by Hayao Miyazaki, 1986, Japan, 124 mins, Rated PG) 35mm
