As a part of the Outside-in Cinema screenings in Experimedia here at the Library, on Wednesday 30th June at 6:30pm you can catch the most recent animated film by Hayao Miyazaki, Ponyo. The story follows the adventures of a young boy who befriends a goldfish princess who wants to be human.

For a bit more background on the world renowned anime director, you could have a look at one of several books in our collection that cover his life and work, such as Hayao Miyazaki : master of Japanese animation : films, themes, artistry.

Or look a bit wider to read about the history and works of his film company, Studio Ghibli.
