“Porco Rosso” Playing February 3

January 28th, 2007 – Announcements, Events

CJAS will be showing Porco Rosso this Saturday at 10:25pm in Goldwin Smith Hall’s Lewis Auditorium. Porco Rosso is one of esteemed director Hayao Miyazaki’s lesser known and unique films, as it strays far from the typical Miyazaki storyline and setting. Still, or perhaps for that reason, it is a very enjoyable and light-hearted tale from start to finish.

Description: In Early 1930’s era Italy, air pirates, bounty hunters and high flyers of all sorts rule the skies. The most cunning and skilled of these pilots is Porco Rosso, a man cursed with the head of a pig after watching the spirits of the pilots killed in the last air battle he fought in rise to the heavens. He now makes a living taking jobs, such as rescuing those kidnapped by air pirates. Donald Curtis, Porco’s rival in the air and in catching the affections of women, provides a constant challenge to the hero, culminating in a hilarious, action packed finale.
