Boston: Ghibli Films at MFA, starting Feb 1

by dm00

Marco-bob says "Check it out!"

Starting Feb. 1, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts will be showing new 35-mm prints of the films of Studio Ghibli (plus Nausicaa). None of the Ghibli Museum shorts, sad to say (and no Grave of the Fireflies), but the rest of the Ghibli oeuvre will be represented.

Showings will be in the new Alfond Auditorium, not the crappy, but huge, auditorium where most of the MFA’s film screenings appear to be, so it looks like the new prints of the films will have justice done to them.

Omo got to see these first but now those of us in the provinces can see them, too!

    Ocean Waves was a DVD still 😦

    i also didn’t get to see Kiki, which is the only Ghibli back catalog left that I reallllly want to see on 35mm. That and maybe some of the shorts (on your mark, etc).

    But yeah, go knock yourselves out.

    Why aren’t there any ‘artistic’ anime airing on TV instead of just movies? I mean, if somebody made that, it would totally revive noitaminA and shit, but nobody wants to do it even though they know that it could open an entire new audience in the Western world?

      I think Japan doesn’t care too much about the Western audience.

      And I’m not sure what you meant by “artistic” anime — Kaiba and Tatami Galaxy count, I would think? Maybe Kuuchu Buranko?

    My old college anime club at Cornell is actually trying to do the same thing in trying to screen Ghibli works at their theater, and hopefully it succeeds there.
