Fathom Events presents Studio Ghibli Fest 2017: Kiki’s Delivery Service.
From the legendary Studio Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki comes “Kiki’s Delivery Service”, the beloved coming-of-age story of a resourceful young witch who uses her broom to create a delivery service, only to lose her gift of flight in a moment of self-doubt.
It is tradition for all young witches to leave their families on the night of a full moon and set out into the wide world to learn their craft. When that night comes for Kiki, she embarks on her life journey with her chatty black cat, Jiji, landing the next morning in a sea-side village, where a bakery owner hires her to make deliveries.
Rarely has the animator’s art been so brilliantly rendered as in this delightfully imaginative film – a beautiful and timeless story of a young girl finding her way in the world.
Dubbed in English on July 23 and subtitled on July 24, this special two-day event will also feature GKIDS Mini-Fest, an ongoing festival of the best animated shorts from around the world.
