Part of the Filmhouse Junior Season
Screening from the English dubbed version.
Following tradition, thirteen year-old Kiki must leave home and support herself for a year. Kiki is a witch, complete with flying broomstick and talking cat.
Based on a children's book by Eiko Kadono, Miyazaki's delightful film is refreshingly down-to-earth about Kiki's problems in adjusting to a new home, not to mention adolescence.
The fantasy is enhanced by the extraordinary surroundings. Kiki's new home is a gorgeously idealised composite of Stockholm, Napoli, Lisbon, Paris and even San Francisco.
