Co-presented with Remembering Hirosima, Imagining Peace

Re-released for its 25th anniversary, this profoundly beautiful anti-war film is praised by critics around the world as a masterpiece. Told in flashback, it's the story about the final months of World War II as experienced by two Japanese siblings, teenager Seita and little sister Setsuko. On their own, the two set up housekeeping in a cave by a stream but their meager resources are quickly exhausted. β€œAn emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation.” -Roger Ebert.

Children's tickets available: $5.00 (ages 12 & under)
