One of ACMI’s most requested films, this Studio Ghibli classic remains one of Hayao Miyazaki’s much-loved animated films and 25 years on, this film definitely stands the test of time. Miyazaki centers this wondrous and at times surreal adventure through the plucky resilience of his two young female protagonists. The English language version also features solid voice work from Dakota and Elle Fanning.
Screening in its original Japanese language with English subtitles and a special English language version for all ages on Tuesday 20 December.
Please note: the 12, 21 & 23 December sessions are in Japanese with English subtitles, while the 17 & 20 December screenings are English dubbed.

When trouble occurs, their new friends will help them rediscover hope.
