image from the film PONYO

This adorable, unnerving odyssey is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” but with heaping portions of signature Miyazaki mysticism, mind-bending plot turns, unrestrained joy, and a kind of “magic other children’s movies can’t touch.” (Washington Post)  

“You'll be planning to see Ponyo twice before you've finished seeing it once…” (LA Times)

Cosponsored with the Asian & Asian American Center at Cornell and the Hasbrouck Community Center. Recommended for ages 5+
