We are going to show two Miyazaki classics that are best experienced on BIG SCREEN.
Spirited Away: During her family’s move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts.
Howl’s Moving Castle: When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking castle.
Hoogstraat 10, 6811 GZ Arnhem
The venue is at a 3 minute walk from Central Station Arnhem.
Miyazaki’s work is full of a little something special — something that is difficult to explain — it’s a kind of silence, a certain lack of action — something — “extra”.
Miyazaki: ‘We have a word for that in Japanese. It’s called ma. Emptiness. It’s there intentionally. [claps his hands] The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it’s just busyness. but if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb.’
