Spirited Away

An Oscar-winner for Best Animated Feature, Hayao Miyazaki's captivating film screens in its English-language version featuring the voices of Suzanne Pleshette and Lauren Holly.

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, among other bizarre deities and demons, on her quest to find her way home. Spirited Away is a gloriously lavish mix of fantasy, folklore and social commentary.

It screens at the request of five-year-old Elsa who will receive a $25 gift voucher from the ACMI Store. If you have a favourite film you'd like to see on the ACMI big screen, send us your pick now!
