MY NEIGHBOUR TOTORO 20TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING

Director: HAYAO MIYAZAKI

JAPAN / 1988 / 86 MIN / IN ENGLISH


Here is a children’s film with no villains – no fight scenes – no scary monsters – a world where if you meet a strange towering creature in the forest, you curl up on its tummy and have a nap. Totoro is a forest spirit that little Mei, and later her older sister Satsuki, encounter in a giant camphor tree near their new home in the countryside. Although their father, a university professor, is with them when they move, their mother is in the hospital, recovering from some unnamed illness. When Mei hears that her mother’s condition may be worsening, she resolves to visit her all by herself. When everyone realises she’s missing, only Totoro knows how to find her! Lovingly hand-crafted by Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) who is often called the greatest of the Japanese animators, this is a classic family film, of which you can never tire.
