Brockwell Park after dark is the evocative setting for our screening of Studio Ghibli’s classic fantasy adventure Spirited Away. Join us at the park’s Performance Space to watch this enchanting animated film with the view across London providing a stunning backdrop.
Ten-year-old Chihiro and her parents stumble into a fantastical realm of witches and monsters. We follow her adventures as she struggles to return her family to the human world – but a simple plot synopsis cannot do justice to this film of mesmerizing beauty. With accolades that include the 2002 Oscar for the best animated feature, Spirited Away (Dir Hayao Miyazaki, 2001, Japan, Cert PG, 120mins) is frequently cited among the greatest animated features of all time.
This will be the first full-length outdoor screening of a film in the history of Brockwell Park and, we believe, will be the 'jewel in the crown' of the Herne Hill Free Film Festival 2013 programme on Saturday 18 May 2013.
Stalls will be selling a mouth-watering selection of hot food and the park café will be open for drinks and light refreshments.
Please note this event will be taking place in an unlit park and you are asked to bring torches. This is an outdoor screening without seats so please bring your own chairs, rugs or cushions. Please dress for British Summer weather! Even if it’s a lovely day, it might be chilly after dark.
Entrance to the park for this event is through the Herne Hill gates at the junction of Norwood Road and Dulwich Road. The Performance Space in Brockwell Park (behind the café) is the setting for our screening from approximately 8.50pm (when it gets dark).
FREE screening. No advance booking.
