East Coast Premiere. Based on an award-winning manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto, creator of the popular Chainsaw Man, Look Back is the tale of two school children united by the power of comics. The film follows their friendships, rivalries, passions and regrets, all revolving around their desire to draw. Looking back, they ask if they would make the same decisions again—even if painful—to become who they are.

Dir. Kiyotaka Oshiyama, 2024, 56 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. With Yuumi Kawai, Mizuki Yoshida.
