A wonderful night out for the school holidays! This lovingly hand-drawn film is an inspired coming-of-age story, set in Yokohamain 1963. It centers on Umi and Shun and their budding romance as they fight to save their high school’s ramshackle clubhouse from demolition.

The top-grossing Japanese film of 2011 and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, From up on Poppy Hill captures the innocence of new love as well as the beauty of Yokohama’s harbor and lush surroundings. With its rich color palette and painterly detail, it provides a pure, sincere, and nuanced evocation of the past, and marks yet another creative triumph for the celebrated Studio Ghibli (Spirited away, Ponyo and Arrietty).

Directed by Goro Miyazaki (G, 2011, 91 mins).
