From the legendary Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro) and Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, comes our first screening of this dazzling animated feature film.
Miyazaki offers a spin on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. On a forbidden excursion to see the surface world, a Goldfish Princess named Ponyo is rescued by a young boy named Sōsuke. The pair become inseparable and Ponyo decides she wants to stay and live on the land with Sōsuke.
Ponyo's decision to give up her underwater life, by using an ancient magic spell, creates a crack in the ecological harmony of nature, and places the world in danger. Together, Sōsuke and Ponyo must set things right before Ponyo’s father forces her to return to the sea and give up the human life on the surface.
Winner of 5 awards at the 8th Annual Tokyo Anime Awards, including Anime of the Year and Best Domestic Feature. Hayao Miyazaki’s modern classic is a visually stunning and a spellbinding adventure that will thrill and delight both young and old audiences.
An arrestingly beautiful, utterly distinctive film not to be missed on the big screen this summer.
