Seaweek - Waiheke Cinema: Ponyo - Koha Screening


Sat 25 Feb 2017, 2:00pm

Where: Waiheke Island Community Cinema, 127-129 Ocean View Rd, Waiheke Island, Auckland

Restrictions: All Ages

Listed by: seaweek

Love the sea and Studio Ghibli animation? Ponyo is a beloved Hayao Miyazaki epic fantasy comedy, originally released in 2008, for children of all ages.

Though inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid fairytale, this family-friendly tale is feel-good, with a happy ending. Screening will be in Japanese, with English subtitles. Watching Ponyo at Waiheke Cinema - completely furnished with couches - will be a real cosy afternoon experience.

The intent of sharing this koha screening is in commemoration of Christopher Wragge - who co-created the WaihekeLibrary-HaurakiClassroom winter lecture series begun in 2016, and co-founded and guided the work of the Waiheke Island Community Planning Group (WICPG) with vital community others from 2004-2016 - who transitioned 5 Oct 2016 after a gradual 3.5-years’ terminal unwellness; Ponyo touched him with resonant depth in its playful evocation of a sense of wonder and at-one-ment at the beauty and vitality of the forces of Nature.
