Japanese Animated Feature Film Screening
On Sunday, July 16, we organised a screening of KIMI NO NA WA.
Venue: Club Activity Centre – 203, Olive Grace Appartments, inside Nautanki lane, Opp. AMA
Time: 10:00 to 11:50 am
The film tells the story of a high school girl in rural Japan and a high school boy in Tokyo who swap bodies. Two strangers find themselves linked in a bizarre way. When a connection forms, will distance be the only thing to keep them apart?
Director: Makoto Shinkai Writer: Makoto Shinkai
JAPANESE ANIME SCREENING
Sunday was yet another lively gathering of some of our Japanese movie buffs and also those totally unknown to this amazing wonderland of creativity.
Kimi no na wa, a Japanese anime romantic fantasy drama film directed, written, cinematographed, and edited by Makoto Shinkai, left our curious viewers fully mesmerized by the almost unearthly art and animation of this extraordinary Japanese coming-of-age tale that packs a whole punch of body-swap comedy, time-travel romance, and adventure film.
Kimi no na wa became a huge commercial success, especially in Japan, where it grossed ¥23 billion (~US$190 million). The film achieved the second largest gross for a domestic film in Japan, behind Spirited Away, and the fourth largest ever, behind Titanic and Frozen. It is the first anime not directed by Hayao Miyazaki to earn more than $100 million (~￥10 billion) at the Japanese box office. It topped the box office in Japan for a record-breaking 12 non-consecutive weekends.
