My Neighbor Totoro by Hayao Miyazaki (1988, 86 min.). After Satsuki and Mei move with their father to a new house in the countryside, the two girls discover a family of Totoros—gentle but powerful creatures only seen by children—living in a camphor tree in the woods. As with much of Miyazaki’s work, My Neighbor Totoro is about humankind’s relationship to the Earth, and the viewer is left with a sense of wonder at the beauty, mystery, and preciousness of the world.
