Based on a Japanese folktale, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya follows a bamboo cutter who finds a tiny magical girl in the forest and raises her as she grows—quickly—into a beautiful young woman, attracting the attention of the most eligible suitors in the region. The elegant animation and rich character development by Studio Ghibli cofounder Isao Takahata makes Princess Kaguya a welcome departure from animated films aimed only at children. In Japanese with subtitles in English. (137 mins., DCP) The film screens in conjunction with the exhibition World of Shojo Manga! Mirrors of Girls’ Desires, on view at Ohio State’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum through July 5. Visit cartoons.osu.edu for more information.
