are air pirates, secret agents and astounding obstacles to keep them from the truth - and from each other.

The first film to be officially released by Studio Ghibli. Directed by Hayao Miyazaki, Laputa is a decidedly more adventure driven, and somewhat light-hearted story, however retains much of the strange & wondrous world-building Miyazaki established in Nausicaa.

"La Locanda dei Girasoli" (The Sunflower Inn) in Rome serves great food. But there is one difference from other Roman pizzerias: most of the staff have Down's Syndrome. This 40-minute film observes a special corner of the Italian capital where ordinary human beings achieve the extraordinary. We witness a life-giving experiment in integration - moving, funny and somehow heroic. We enter into the interior worlds of the characters to share their joys, sorrows and dreams for the future; dreams that sooner or later will be confronted with the realities of the outside world.

Journalist Kim Webby's Price of Peace is a portrait of Tūhoe activist Tame Iti, whose family Webby has known for 20 plus years. After the 2007 police raids, Iti was one of four to go on trial, accused of plotting terrorist activities. Webby’s film ranges widely from early land grievances to modern-day jail cells — and a police apology. NZ Herald reviewer Peter Calder praised the result for balancing a personal focus on Iti, with “a powerfully affecting” examination of the 2007 raids, which placed the raids in "the wider context of Tūhoe history and the process of reconciliation”.

Whisper of the Heart

Whisper of the Heart

PG

Shizuku Tsukishima is a bit of a book-worm, spending her last summer vacation in junior high school reading and translating popular foreign music into Japanese. With aspirations to one day become a writer, Shizuku can’t help but notice that the name Seiji Amasawa appears on every one of the books she borrows from the library.

Through a series of curious and magical incidents, she comes to meet Seiji and discovers he has dreams of becoming a famous violin maker in Italy. While their life-long goals pull them in two different directions, Shizuku and Seiji are determined to remain true to their strong feelings for one another.

A delightful romantic comedy that has all the classic Ghibli hallmarks of reality meets fantasy. Plus, perhaps most

importantly, a talking German cat statuette called The Baron. The first, and sadly, only film to be directed by Studio

Ghibli up-and-coming talent, Yoshifumi Kondou – who passed away only a few years after its release.
