From Studio Ponoc, the animation collective featuring several principal artists from the recently shuttered Studio Ghibli, Mary and the Witch’s Flower presents a young girl’s discovery of an enchanted broom. It transports her into a world of magic and adventure, leading to the further revelation of a mystifying flower whose seeds grant her powers beyond her wildest dreams. “An ideal choice for Harry Potter and Studio Ghibli devotees, this animated fantasy adventure about a seemingly unremarkable English girl who enters a magical world is sweetly enchanting.”—Maggie Lee, Variety



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
