(1992) dir Hayao Miyazaki [94 min]
Set in a mid-war Italy swept by fascism, PORCO ROSSO follows the life of Marco, a world-weary flying ace-turned bounty hunter who has been cursed with the head of a pig. Together with an innocent and energetic airplane designer, Marco is catapulted into an airborne adventure pursued by air pirates, the Italian army, and an egotistical American flying ace. This unsung treasure from Studio Ghibli nestles a tale of morality and identity inside a soaring airborne adventure.
