New York's Carnegie Hall to Show 2 Miyazaki Shorts
posted on by Gia Manry
New York City's Carnegie Hall performance center announced on Tuesday that it will screen two 2006 anime shorts directed by Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki on March 26. Both shorts will have only been seen in Japan prior to these screenings.
The two titles are Yado-Sagashi (House Hunting) and Mizugumo Monmon (Mon Mon the Water Spider). Yado-Sagashi follows a young girl named Fuki as she embarks on a journey to find a new home. Mizugomo Monmon is about a diving bell spider (a species which lives entirely underwater) which falls in love with a water strider. Studio Ghibli animated both shorts for the Ghibli Musuem in Mitaka, Japan.
The shorts will screen on March 26 at 6:30 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online for US$15 each.
Last December, producer and former Studio Ghibli president Toshio Suzuki revealed that Yado-Sagashi would be screened at a New York City event, but did not specify which one it would be.
