April 15 & April 16 at 11am | Set in Italy during World War I, the film follows the life of Marco, a mysterious fighter pilot turned bounty hunter. Somewhere along the way, a curse has transformed Marco’s head into the head of a pig, earning him the moniker of “Porco Rosso” or “Red Pig.” When he meets the aspiring airplane designer Fio, the two are catapulted into an airborne adventure. Less seen than Miyazaki’s fan favorites MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO and HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE, PORCO ROSSO is a rambunctious, unsung treasure that expertly weaves themes of loss, anti-war, and identity into a spirited story of adventure on the open skies. Recommended for ages 10+
