The Naughton Gallery presents Porco Rosso as part of its SCREEN/PRINT series in collaboration with UsFolk, featuring free posters by illustrator Thomas Bannon.

Porco Rosso is a world-weary flying ace-turned-bounty-hunter with a difference - he has the face of a pig. When his high-flying heroics annoy a band of sky pirates they hire a hotshot American rival to get rid of him. With the help of a teenage girl, an aspiring airplane designer, and a desirable lounge singer, Porco takes to the skies for what may be his final showdown.

From the legendary Studio Ghibli and Academy Award winning director Hayao Miyazaki, Porco Rosso is a dazzling aerial adventure and pure, breathtaking entertainment.

Porco Rosso will be screening in the original Japanese with English subtitles.
