Adventure

Join us as as we screen the high-flying Porco Rosso for Cinema Capitol’s Studio Ghibli series–one of Hayao Miyazaki’s early, lesser screened films!

In 1930’s Italy, air pirates, bounty hunters and high flyers of all sorts rule the skies. The most cunning and skilled of these pilots is Porco Rosso, a man cursed with the head of a pig. He now makes a living taking jobs, such as rescuing those kidnapped by air pirates. Donald Curtis, Porco’s rival in the air and in catching the affections of women, provides a constant challenge to the hero, culminating in a hilarious,
action packed finale.

A rollicking adventure, set to a Mediterranean backdrop and replete with beautifully orchestrated dogfights – Hayao Miyazaki offers up perhaps his most blockbuster-esque feature in PORCO ROSSO… But even still, manages to retain
all the heart and magic of classic Ghibli.
