Studio Ghibli festival at the Ken - UPDATED
An embarrassment of riches for animation fans, other sort of fans as well.
UPDATE - We should have mentioned: these are 35mm prints!
Tonight, Friday, the festival opens with Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
Best crawly insect monster ever? Best crawly insect monster ever.
Saturday, you get Princess Mononoke:
"Now, watch closely everyone; I'm going to show you how to kill a god." Dayum. I got yer Avatar right here.
Sunday, it's a double feature, Kiki's Delivery Service and Pom Poko.
Magical Care-Bear Raccoons for the win!
There's more to come, but that should take you through the weekend. Showtimes here.
