About the film
KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE
JAPAN 1989 103min. G
Directed by Hayao Miyazaki

*Presented in English*

Kiki's Delivery Service follows Kiki--a thirteen year old witch with a black cat familiar named Jiji--as she embarks on a rite of passage into adulthood away from home. In order to utilize her powers, find favour with the locals, and earn an income, Kiki sets up a delivery service in partnership with a bakery; what results is a series of adventures, and stacks on stacks of sad, breakfast pancakes that come from a box mix, appropriately labelled as “jiburi no hot keki mix” (i.e. Ghibli’s hot cake). Partially an ode to Pippi Longstocking, and unintentionally familiar to Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Kiki's Delivery Service discusses how hard it can be to be a teenager, and especially a teenager with powers. - CORA JAMES

n.b. This encore screening of Kiki's is not part of the FOOD IN FILM series and will not be paired with dessert. There will however still be prizes from our sponsor, The Beguiling Books & Art!
