SPIRITED AWAY [PG]
Chihiro is a capricious 10-year-old girl who believes the entire world should submit to her every whim. While en route to a new home, Chihiro and her parents stumble upon a mysterious tunnel, which leads them to a ghostly town – the Land of the Spirits, a world inhabited by ancient gods and magical beings, who holiday at a giant bath house run by the demonic sorceress, Yubaba. Chihiro finds an ally in the enigmatic Haku, who explains that in order to survive this strange and perilous world, Chihiro must make herself useful by working hard at the bath house. Chihiro renounces her laziness, her reason, her memories, even her name… This visionary work from legendary animator Miyazaki is a surreal fable and an enchanting fairytale.

PRINCESS MONONOKE [PG]
When Prince Ashitaka slays a raging boar god, he is wounded and becomes infected with the sickness that had sent the beast berserk, a malady stemming from humankind’s disharmony with nature. Set at the time of Japan’s transition from the Middle Ages to the modern era, Princess Mononoke is a morally complex tale that blends a fantasy quest with social comment for our times.
