Kiki's Delivery Service
DIRECTOR: HAYAO MIYAZAKI
CAST: MINAMI TAKAYAMA, REI SAKUMA
A witch tale, as only Hayao Miyazaki could tell. In this soaring coming-of-age story set in a fantasia of prewar Europe, a 13-year-old sorceress-in-training uses her mother’s magic broomstick as a vehicle to help her start delivering packages, with the assistance of her talking black cat, Jiji. After losing her broom and therefore her powers, she must retrain herself while working for a baker, one of many female role models who help Kiki find her way.
NOTE: We will be screening the film with English subtitles.
