The award-winning In This Corner of the World (Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni) follows a young girl named Suzu Urano, a talented natural artist who, in 1944, moves to the small town of Kure near Hiroshima where she marries Shūsaku Hōjō – a young clerk who works at the local naval base. Living with his family, the big-hearted Suzu becomes essential to the running of the household and creatively prepares meals during the tough wartime conditions while also carrying out daily housework.

In 1945, intense bombings by the US military finally reach Kure with devastating effect to the townsfolk and their way of life. Suzu’s life is changed irrevocably, but through perseverance and courage, she manages to continue to live life to the fullest. This beautiful yet tragic tale shows that even in the face of adversity and loss, people can come together and rebuild their lives.

The charming and cheerful character of Suzu highlights the noble spirit of the Japanese, making In This Corner of the World an uplifting coming-of-age story and a timeless classic with universal appeal for a modern audience.

Beguiling and beautifully hand drawn, In This Corner of the World is directed by Studio Ghibli disciple Sunao Katabuchi, the director of Princess Arete and Mai Mai Miracle, based on the award-winning manga Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni by Fumiyo Kouno.(Japanese language//English subtitles)

“Suzu’s story becomes so deeply personal that when an animated hand waves at the audience at the film’s conclusion, we will feel like waving back, like we would to a friend.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
