My Neighbour Totoro Family Film – IFI – 11:00-14:00


See off the Sunday scaries with one of Studio Ghibli’s most-loved titles. Directed by Hayao Miyazaki for the studio, it was the first to garner international attention for the famous anime house.

Exquisitely hand-drawn visuals establish a real world in which two sisters reside, close to their ailing grandma, and a fantasy world to which they escape, filled with spirits and creatures of the forest, all offering comfort to the saddened pair.

Appearing in 1988 at a time when American animation seemed generic, through its story, characterisation and exquisite craft, Totoro showed how animation could once again enchant audiences worldwide.

My Neighbour Totoro will screen in the English language version, featuring the voices of Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning.
