Ghiblifest 2023: My Neighbor Totoro
Mukai Farm & Garden is proud to present our first annual Studio Ghibli Festival! Last summer, Mukai Anime Club held several public screenings of Studio Ghibli films at the Vashon Theatre with great success. This year, we have organized four Studio Ghibli films to play at the Vashon Theatre, one per month, over the course of the summer. Ghiblifest will culminate with our final movie Ponyo to be shown immediately after Mukai Japan Festival on Saturday, September 9th. Ghiblifest is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $5 per person at the door. The theatre fills up quickly, so be sure to arrive early for good seats and to avoid long lines at concessions.
My Neighbor Totoro
When Satsuki and her sister Mei move with their father to a new home in the countryside, they find country life is not as simple as it seems. They soon discover that the house and nearby woods are full of strange and delightful creatures, including a gigantic but gentle forest spirit called Totoro, who can only be seen by children. Totoro and his friends introduce the girls to a series of adventures, including a ride aboard the extraordinary Cat Bus, in this all-ages animated masterpiece featuring the voices of Tim Daly, Lea Salonga, and real-life sisters Dakota and Elle Fanning, in early roles.
