Master anime studio Studio Ghibli is a factory of genius fantasy films that combine remarkable storytelling with vividly inventive animations. Among their list of globally acclaimed productions is ‘Ponyo,’ a deeply evocative parable of environmentalism and love.
‘Ponyo’ tells the story of five-year-old Sosuke, the son of a sailor, who comes across a goldfish trapped in a glass bottle. Named Ponyo, the goldfish proves to be miraculously unordinary and transforms into a young girl. The two forge a profound friendship, however, the longer Ponyo stays on land, the more the world balances off kilter. But when five-year-old Sosuke befriends the spunky little fish near the seaside home he shares with his mother and father, a special connection sparks between the two children, and Ponyo becomes determined to become human.
Transforming into a little girl, Ponyo shows up at Sosuke’s doorstep, delighted to make herself at home with her new land-dwelling family. But having a magical fish princess walking around on dry land begins setting the mystical balance of the world off kilter, and even though the innocent love Ponyo feels for her dear friend is strong, it will take some help from the greatest powers in the ocean to make things right again.
Cinema Akil, the region’s first and permanent art house theatre, is screening the award-winning children's animation for two nights only this November.
