Hayao Miyazaki’s Porco Rosso playing at Enzian Theater This Week

Every year after Thanksgiving, Enzian Theater does a wonderful thing by presenting a Studio Ghibli film to the community. Past showings have included My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Spirited Away. This year, Enzian Theater will show Hayao Miyazaki’s criminally underrated classic, Porco Rosso.

Plot summary from Enzian Theater:

In this entrancing tale by renowned Japanese animator Hiyao Miyazaki, World War I flying ace Marco Pagott mysteriously turns from a man into a pig after all his comrades die in battle. Now known as Porco Rosso, the pilot continues fighting air pirates while, on the ground, flirting with a gorgeous club singer. After an attack by a brash American pilot, Porco meets confident Fio, who repairs his plane with her girl mechanics, and sees him for who he really is.

There will be two showings of Porco Rosso; on Sunday, November 26th at noon will be a showing of the English-language version starring Michael Keaton. On Friday, December 1st at 11:59pm will be a showing of the Japanese-language version with English subtitles. Enzian Theater is located at 1300 South Orlando Avenue, Maitland, FL 32751.
