9-film Studio Ghibli retrospective in Miami, FL! 6/19-6/25

A 9-Film Studio Ghibli Celebration 6/19 – 6/25

No use pretending. With Hayao Miyazaki’s retirement and the imminent closing of the fabled Ghibli Studios he lifted to heights only attained by Disney at its prime, the glorious era of feature-length hand-drawn animation is, sadly, drawing to an end. What better time than to celebrate Miyazaki, whose name deserves to be followed – always – by an exclamation mark? Unlike his peers, his art was not only directed at “children of all ages.” Like the great ones, he inspired the young. But he also thrilled younger (and older) adults with classics like Princess Mononoke and Nausicaä. From his palette sprung beauty in all of its forms: bold, lyrical, poetic, stark. Whether he set sail in a flight of fancy or anchored his art in images more vivid than life, Miyazaki! was an animator for all seasons. Uncharacteristically, the Motion Picture Academy wasted no time in awarding the master a Lifetime Achievement Oscar almost as soon as his retirement was announced. At the ceremony, Pixar wizard John Lasseter closed his remarks by saying: “In stature, in influence, in the range and quality of his body of work, there will never be another to rival him.” To which we can only add: Amen.

CGAC is grateful to Frank Gladstone, president of ASIFA-Hollywood (The International Animated Film Society) for specially recording introductions to all nine films in our celebration.

All films are presented in their original Japanese with English subtitles unless otherwise noted.
