SAT.  AUG 1st 

In this corner of the world

この世界の片隅に

2016 ‧ War/Animation ‧ PG-13 ‧ 2h 9m

The film is set in the 1930s–1940s in Hiroshima and Kure in Japan, roughly 10 years before and after the atomic bomb, but mainly in 1944–45. In the film, nature and traditional culture in Japan are clearly described and contrasted with the cruel and irredeemable scenes brought by the war. Though it is a fictional account, the official guidebook of the film claims that the episodes and background of the story are based on facts and real incidents researched by the production staff. In the film, the lost townscape of pre-war Hiroshima, damaged by the atomic bombing in Hiroshima, is revived in the scenes, following old photos, documents, and the memories of living people.

The horses are kept alive because of the role they must play in the grand annual horse festival with a 1,000-year history, but they've become a headache for the authorities.
