Bonus Screening!

Legendary Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata (Grave of the FirefliesPom Poko) revisits Japan's most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making. Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady. The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her - but ultimately she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime.


From the studio that brought you Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, and The Wind Rises comes a powerful and sweeping epic that redefines the limits of animated storytelling and marks a triumphant highpoint within an extraordinary career in filmmaking for director Isao Takahata.


Winner of Best Animated Feature at the Toronto Film Critics Association Awards (2015), Mainichi Film Concours (2013), Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards (2014), Boston Society of Film Critics Awards (2014), and the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (2014).


Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards (2015), Annie Awards (2015), Japanese Academy Awards (2014), Blue Ribbon Awards (2013), and many more.
