STUDIO GHIBLI FEST, a nine film monthly series of anime classics, continues with the "Porco Rosso." From the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of "Spirited Away", and Academy Award®-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, comes a dazzling aerial adventure set in and above the scenic port towns of the Adriatic Sea. This special event will play in US movie theaters nationwide for three days only on May 20, 21 and 23.
Porco Rosso is a world weary flying ace-turned-bounty-hunter, whose face has been transformed into that of a pig by a mysterious spell. When he infuriates a band of sky pirates with his heroics, the pirates hire Curtis, a hotshot American rival, to get rid of him. But with the help of the teenage girl Fio, an aspiring airplane designer, and sultry lounge singer named Gina, Porco takes to the skies for what may be his final high-flying showdown.
