11:00 AM Film: Princess Mononoke Princess Mononoke is a landmark of animation and a film of unsurpassed power and beauty. An epic story of conflict between humans, gods, and nature, the film has been universally acclaimed by critics and broke the box office record on its original release in Japan.

While defending his village from a demonic boar-god, the young warrior Ashitaka becomes afflicted with a curse that grants him super-human power in battle but will eventually take his life. Traveling west to find a cure or meet his destiny, he journeys deep into sacred depths of the Great Forest where he meets San (Princess Mononoke), a girl raised by wolf-gods who is waging battle against the human outpost of Iron Town, on the edge of the forest. The girl Mononoke a force of nature—with blood smeared lips, riding bareback on a great white wolf, doing battle with both gods and humans—she is as iconic a figure as any from film, literature, or opera.

7:00 PM Film: Tutto Quello Che Vuoi Alessandro is a 22-year-old turbulent and ignorant slacker from the Trastevere neighborhood in Rome. He lost his mother when he was two and has become the torment of his father—a peddler in Porta Portese, the local flea-market—who can't imagine a future for his idle and furious son and is unable to find the key to his heart. Giorgio is eighty-five, a forgotten poet who lives in solitude and restraint in a flat on the Gianicolo Hill, with only the help and care of his landlady and neighbor. He is in an early stage of Alzheimer's; he can still move, but his mind is drifting tragically away from the present. The two live within a stone's throw from one another, but their paths have never crossed, and they couldn't be more distant. But this story puts them together when Alessandro is offered to accompany the old man in his afternoon walks and is forced to accept the job.

Admission/Cost: $12.48
