This April (and first week of May) we celebrate the world of animation with a series of Anime screenings punctuated by a series of special events and personal appearances as well as a delve in to Chinese "Dong Hua". We love East Asian film and filmmakers and are delighted to share this season of wondrous, thrilling animation with our always-growing Genesis family!
In partnership with our friends from Orbital Comics we present a Studio Ghibli favourite, MY NEIGHBOUR TOTORO.
This acclaimed animated tale by director Hayao Miyazaki follows schoolgirl Satsuke (Dakota Fanning) and her younger sister, Mei (Elle Fanning), as they settle into an old country house with their father (Tim Daly) and wait for their mother (Lea Salonga) to recover from an illness in an area hospital. As the sisters explore their new home, they encounter and befriend playful spirits in their house and the nearby forest, most notably the massive cuddly creature known as Totoro.
