Join us for one of four Studio Ghibli film screenings
What is it?
To tie in with their eye-popping and totally immersive manga exhibition, The British Museum and Time Out have bumped heads to bring you the ultimate Studio Ghibli film season, with live interviews, screenings and free sake, all in collaboration with Japan House.
There's something for everyone in this season, whether you know your tanuki from your Totoros, or you thought Ghibli were the bits you pulled out of a chicken. On hand to answer all your questions about the internationally adored art form will be Japan House's director of programming, Simon Wright, and Manga curator Matsuba Ryoko. Ticket-holders will also get to sit in on a live recording of the Ghibliotheque podcast, in which Ghibli fanatic Michael Leader unpacks the history behind the cult film studio to his unwitting co-host Jake Cunningham. Plus, everyone will be given a complimentary glass of sake and watch the magic happen in some ’90s Studio Ghibli, courtesy of StudioCanal. In the 1994 mischievous fantasy ‘Pom Poko’, we see the shapeshifting Japanese folklore characters ‘tanuki’, as they battle to save their forest home from urban development.
This event is part of Manga: colour and style, a free Friday Late celebrating Japanese manga, art, fashion and design. The event includes drop-in manga drawing workshops facilitated by award-winning manga artist Kutsuwada Chie, a cosplay 'COSParade' presented by HYPER JAPAN, live music performances by Ichikawa Hibiki and DJ Takaki, sake tasting, as well as a very special manga-inspired fashion presentation by students from the University of the Arts London (UAL) devised alongside Japanese fashion legend, Kansai Yamamoto, who will join British Museum Trustee and UAL Chancellor Grayson Perry in conversation on the night. Further details are here."
