A special Book Club screening of Studio Ghibli's adaptation of fantasy writer Diana Wynne Jones' classic tale, with a discussion led by Junko Nishimura and Akie Kishino, from Shirayuri College, Japan and experts on the work of the author. This film is an exquisite, dream like adventure that sees a young woman transformed into an old crone by a spiteful witch. Her only chance to break the curse lies with a strange but flamboyant wizard whose large home can travel under its own power.

Beguiling and and beautiful, Howl's is another Ghibli classic.
