6.00-8.45pm The Tale of Princess Kaguya
BAC: Sc1

“Kaguyahime no monogatari” (original title)

Certificate: U  137 min  
Director: Isao Takahata

This animated folk legend was 8 years in the making and a labour of love for Isao Takahata, the legendary director of Grave of the Fireflies. A masterpiece to rank amongst Studio Ghibli’s finest, it bursts with lush, hand-painted images accompanied by an enchanting musical score. After initially being shunned by British cinemas, Kaguya was nominated for the 2014 Oscar for best animation. This is why we are delighted to offer it as one of our opening events.

Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady. The mysterious young princess enthrals all who encounter her – but ultimately she must confront her fate – the punishment for a mysterious crime.

This screening will have a special introduction.
