Playing as part of our month-long Hayao Miyazaki Celebration! Both screenings of this film will be subtitled.
IN THE SKY (1986):
Young orphan Sheeta, and her kidnapper, Col. Muska,
are flying to a military prison when their plane is attacked by a gang
of air pirates led by the matronly Dola. Escaping from a mid-air
collision via a magic crystal around her neck, Sheeta meets fellow
orphan Pazu, and the pair join forces to discover the mystical floating
city of Laputa, while pursued by both Muska and the pirates, who lust
for the city's myriad treasures.
Before the film, Eric Little will perform a medley of themes from Miyazaki films on the Beverly Ruth Nelson memorial organ. Little, a musician and theatre artist from Portland, is a great fan of Joe Hisaishi, the composer who has provided the music for all of Miyazaki’s films.
