In this Corner of the World


Dir. Sunao Katabuchi | Japan | 128 min | subtitles | 12A
 
Sunao Katabuchi's (Mai Mai Miracle, Princess Arete) introspective, beautifully-drawn animation depicts the incredible horror of Hiroshima via the coming-of-age story of a young girl, showing with great emotional impact the full extent of what was lost.
 
Japan, 1933: Suzu lives in a port town with her family, running errands and enjoying the simplicity and innocence of childhood. But in 1944 things are very different: now 18 in the midst of war, Suzu moves near Hiroshima to be married, aiding the war effort and supporting her new relations, until in 1945 the US raids begin - leading to the historic atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that killed 129,000, devastated the country and changed the course of the war.
 
"A dream-like portrait of what was lost in the battle of Hiroshima" **** Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

In partnership with Random Acts, we are screening short works by young filmmakers before our main features. We hope you enjoy the talent from young creatives across the country. To accompany In This Corner of the World, we will be screening a short film entitled "The Law of the Sea".
