THE KINGDOM OF DREAMS AND MADNESS d. Mami Sunada, 2013 + Intro by Ghiblioteque at The Prince Charles (04 SEP 12:30):

  • “Ghibliotheque, the podcast that celebrates the world’s greatest animation studio, Studio Ghibli, presents a rare screening of the incredible and insightful feature-length Ghibli documentary. Shot by director Mami Sunada, the documentary provides unparalleled access to the workings of the Studio as they craft two soon-to-be masterpieces from their two resident geniuses: Hayao Miyazaki’s THE WIND RISES and Isao Takahata’s THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA. As production swirls around her, Sunada observes these masters at work, and introduces fans and viewers to the quirks and eccentricities of life at Ghibli – from the gruelling grind of producing hand-drawn animation, to the unique perspective of Ushiko, Ghibli’s studio cat.”


  • THE NOTEBOOK d. Nick Cassavetes, 2004 at Rooftop Film Club, Stratford East (04 SEP 20:00).
  • TOP GUN d. Tony Scott, 1986 at Rooftop Film Club, Peckham (04 SEP 20:00).

MISHA AND THE WOLVES d. Sam Hobkinson, 2021.
