Winner of multiple prestigious awards and named best Japanese movie of 2016 by the esteemed film publication Kinema Junpo, this much-acclaimed hand-drawn animation tenderly depicts the joys and sorrows of Suzu Urano, who begins her married life in the small coastal city of Kure in Hiroshima Prefecture. Set during WWII, the hardships and devastation of war creep in as life and the landscape around her become increasingly grim. As gentle and clear-eyed as Sunao Katabuchi’s humanist animation, Suzu perseveres through life as a participant and victim to one of the most extraordinary events of the 20th century with vulnerability and zest, falling in love and stumbling along the way.

2016. 128 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Sunao Katabuchi. With Non, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Daisuke Ono, Minori Omi, Natsuki Inaba.

Winner, 2016 Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year; Winner, 2016 Kinema Junpo Award for Best Film, Best Director, Reader’s Choice.
