Image from the film My Neighbor Totoro
On the surface, My Neighbor Totoro is the simple tale of two sisters, Satsuki and Mei. The two move to a new countryside home with their father, where they discover the nearby forests are home to a family of Totoros, powerful, giant creatures who inhabit the trees and can only been seen by children. However, as with many of Hayao Miyazaki’s works, beneath the film’s simple narrative lies great wisdom. At its core, My Neighbor Totoro is an introspective look at humans' relationship to Earth. In Japanese with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
