Spirited Away

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Hayao Miyazaki, Hayao Miyazaki, Hayao Miyazaki, Hayao Miyazaki
2001 / 125min / DCP

“A film that brings the fantastical, the idea of spirits and ghosts, into the world of this young girl. She’s on a trip with her parents and they stop at this empty café where the parents start to indulge in food that doesn’t belong to them. The parents turn into pigs, these gluttonous creatures; the little girl freaks out, then is rescued by a young boy who helps her escape just as the sun sets and the spirits are entering this space. That’s the beginning of the film, and I love it; you’re seeing this fusion of the real world with the fantastical, the introduction of a whole other world that parallels her world in the film. It’s similar to how I think about spirituality in my work.”—Alexandria Smith
