“My Neighbor Totoro” / Free Outdoor Screening! Friday, November 10 at 6:30pm  FREE ADMISSION DIRECTED BY Hayao Miyazaki, 1988, Japan, 86 mins, “Rated G Join us for a free outdoor screening of one of the most endearing and internationally renowned family films of all time, a film that Roger Ebert called “one of the five best movies” ever made for children, Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro is a deceptively simple tale of two girls, Satsuki and Mei, who move with their father to a new house in the countryside. They soon discover that the surrounding forests are home to a family of Totoros, gentle but powerful creatures who live in a huge and ancient camphor tree and are seen only by children. As with much of Miyazaki’s work, at its core My Neighbor Totoro is about human-kind’s relationship to the Earth, and viewers are left with a sense of wonder at the beauty, mystery and preciousness of the world around us. This special Loft Film Fest screening will take place outdoors at Himmel Park on “Hippie Hill”, located at 1000 N Tucson Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85716. FREE ADMISSION. *Please bring your own seating.”
