Hayao Miyazaki's captivating feature film Spirited Away is presented here in its English language version, featuring the voice talent of Suzanne Pleshette, Lauren Holly and Michael Chiklis.

Ten-year-old Chihiro is unhappy at the prospect of her family moving house. When her father takes a wrong turn on their way to their new neighbourhood, the family stumbles upon an abandoned theme park that transports them into a mystical world inhabited by wondrous creatures and ghostly apparitions.

Separated from her parents, Chihiro embarks on a fantastical adventure in which she encounters talking toads, walruses, penguins and a sludge monster amongst other bizarre deities and demons. It is a gloriously lavish mix of fantasy, folklore and social commentary for children of all ages.

Screens as part of a retrospective of ten hand-picked Kids' Flicks celebrating ACMI's 10th birthday.
