Double bill of Japanese sci-fi anime fables from director Fumihiko Sori. In 'Elliptical Orbit' a crew return home after a fifteen year space mission. Due to the nature of their journey, however, the crew have only aged two years. How will this affect them as they return to friends and family who have now raced ahead of them in years? 'Symbiotic Planet' follows humankind as they attempt to establish a civilisation on a new planet. Unfortunately, the same battles and struggles that have marked the history of Earth soon break out among the various bands of colonisers.
While their mother recovers from an illness, Satsuki and her little sister Mei (voiced in English by Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning) get away from it all in an idyllic rural retreat. Far from the bustle of the city, they discover a mysterious place of spirits and magic, and the friendship of the Totoro woodland creatures.
Conceived as a family film devoid of conflict and suffused with the carefree pleasures of the summertime, My Neighbour Totoro sees Hayao Miyazaki create a parable of friendship and imagination populated with unforgettable characters.
A universal classic for all generations, My Neighbour Totoro shows Japanese animation's famous Studio Ghibli at its very best, and is an elegy to two ever-fading miracles: the fairytale world of childhood and the disappearing countryside.
Japanese with English subtitles and English dubbed.
From the acclaimed director of Grave Of The Fireflies.
As civilisation draws ever nearer to their idyllic forest home, a group of mischievous Japanese tanuki raccoons try to scare humans away. But they soon discover that man is not their only rival in the struggle for their age-old territory
Released in 1994 as the Japanese economy slumped, but looking back to the sixties construction boom in Tokyo's Tama Hills, Pom Poko questions the money-grabbing ethic of yuppie Japan, and mourns the loss of the countryside. Drawing on Japanese myths and legends, writer and director Isao Takahara presents a satirical view of woodland spirits using every available magical ruse to take on modern developers: including transformations, sabotage and trickery.
Pom Poko is a unique window into Japanese folklore, a comedy of modern failings, and an elegiac tale of unlikely heroes fighting insurmountable odds.
