Studio Ghibli Films Returns to The Cinematheque

Due to popular demands and plenty of sold-out shows in the past, The Cinematheque is doing a second run of Studio Ghibli retrospective this Summer! A total of 16 Ghibli films will be screened throughout July 4 – August 5, 2013. With the exception of Ponyo, all films will be shown in Japanese language with English subtitles.

The program includes two rare titles — Only Yesterday and The Ocean Waves — never released in North America. It also features two films not included in The Cinematheque’s first presentation of the retrospective in December: popular Ponyo, a great favourite of children, and the recently-released From Up on Poppy Hill, the latest wonder from Studio Ghibli.

Location: Cinematheque – 1131 Howe Street, Vancouver BC

About Time of Eve: The Movie

In a near-future Japan, humans coexist with sophisticated androids, who are indiscernible from humans except for the glowing data halo readouts hovering over their heads. In this beautifully-animated science fiction tale we enter the back alleys of Tokyo, where a secret café exists. It is a place where androids can turn their halos off and where the lives of humans and their robotic counterparts take surprising new directions. Time of Eve, written and directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura. Japanese with English subtitles. 106 mins.
