Studio Ghibli Encore Weekend: Feb 15- Feb 18
Thank you for your support of our January Studio Ghibli Film Retrospective!
Perfect for audiences of all ages, Ponyo centers on the friendship between five-year-old Sosuke and a magical goldfish named Ponyo, the young daughter of a sorcerer father and a sea-goddess mother. After a chance encounter, Ponyo yearns to become a human so she can be with Sosuke. As to be expected with Miyazaki, the film is awash in pure unbridled imagination and visual wonder — but it is the tender love, humor, and devotion exhibited by Ponyo and Sosuke that form the emotional heart of the film.
In 2009, the film was awarded with the 32nd Japan Academy Prize for both Animation of the Year and Outstanding Musical Achievement.
