Masterpieces from Studio Ghibli will feature an all-Ghibli festival, showcasing five films from the animation masters who founded the studio - Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata - along with two versions of the live-action staging of Spirited Away in Tokyo.

All films will be introduced by Dr. Marc Hairston, a research scientist at the University of Texas at Dallas. A professional space physicist, part-time anime scholar, and Fort Worth native, Hairston has hosted annual Japanese animation festivals at the Modern since 2012.
