Advanced Special Screening of In This Corner of the World
The Shout Factory invites You and a Guest (Member +1) to a Special Advance Screening.
Winner of the Animation of the Year award at the 40th Japan Academy Prize, In This Corner of the World follows Suzu Urano, who, in 1944, moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima. Suzu’s life is thrown into chaos when her town is bombed.
Her perseverance and courage underpin this heart-warming tale of the everyday challenges faced by the Japanese in the midst of violence and war, showing that even in the face of adversity and loss, people can come together and rebuild their lives.
