Children Who Chase Lost Voices
DIRECTOR: MAKOTO SHINKAI
CAST: HILARY HAAG, COREY HARTZOG, LERALDO ANZALDUA
Asuna, an unsupervised, independent girl, escapes her lonely life by listening to mysterious music on the crystal radio left to her by her late father, only to one day find more escape than she’d bargained for in a passage to Agartha, a fabled underground land of the dead populated by shadow-dwelling monsters, Quetzalcoatls, and other unbelievable creatures. A robust adventure story and, at heart, a wrenching meditation on the process of mourning, saying goodbye, and moving on.
Screening as a part of our Makoto Shinkai series.
