Friday Film: My Neighbor Totoro
November 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
My Neighbor Totoro is set in post-war Japan, in a rural village where a man and his two daughters move into a small house so they can be closer to their ailing mother. It’s here that the girls discover the magic of the natural world that is all around them; tiny dust balls in the empty house are actually creatures, and the woods are filled with pointy-eared spirits, the most cuddly of which one of the girls dubs Totoro. There are a number of moments in ‘Totoro’ where Miyazaki just allows the wind to rustle the grass and the sunlight to drape over the girls, emphasizing the magic of everyday life and the importance of slowing down long enough to recognize it, a gift that we can all appreciate today.
The film is free and all are welcome; however, we are limited to 25 people and masks are required.
