Mondo Unveils Sweet 'Totoro' Poster For Studio Ghibli Retrospective

The first of several Ghibli-inspired posters surfaces in advance of the 25-year Ghibli retrospective at New York's IFC Theater.

The lovely poster and its variant below were created by artist Olly Moss to coincide with the big 15-film Studio Ghibli retrospective which starts this Friday. Limited to runs of 400 for the one on the top and 150 for the variant, the poster will go on sale starting Friday for $50/$90. You can find out more information about the poster and the retrospective in the press release further down the page. If you want to snag one of these posters, you'll have to follow @MondoTees on Twitter and wait for them to announce the beginning of the sales.

The poster release coincides with a recently announced 15-title, 25-year retrospective from Japan’s beloved Studio Ghibli, which plays the IFC Center in New York City from Friday, December 16 to Thursday, January 12. The 15-film retrospective is presented by GKIDS, a distributor of award-winning animated films. The full schedule can be found on the GKIDS website. Following the NYC engagement the Studio Ghibli retrospective will be visiting Los Angeles, Boston, Toronto, San Francisco, Washington DC, Chicago, Seattle and other major North American cities.

Mondo and Studio Ghibli will donate all profits from the MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO print to Ghetto Film School, an organization of educators and students who share a love for storytelling and filmmaking. Ghetto Film School is a non-profit organization with the mission to educate, develop and celebrate the next generation of great American storytellers.

Mondo will next create a poster based on Studio Ghibli’s PORCO ROSSO, which just screened at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas for Butt-Numb-A-Thon, Ain’t It Cool News’s 24-hour movie marathon. The new 35mm pristine print wowed an audience of diehard cinephiles.

The full film schedule can be found at the GKIDS site. You can find out more about Ghetto Film School at its site.
