An empowering coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of World War II, In This Corner of the World is a captivating story about the resilience and triumph of the human spirit.

Bolstered by emotionally resonant storytelling and exquisite hand-drawn animation, this acclaimed animated feature recently won the coveted Animation of the Year award at this year’s 40th Japan Academy Prize.

Movie Synopsis: A young lady named Suzu Urano, who in 1944 moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima to live with her husband’s family.

Suzu’s life is thrown into chaos when her town is bombed during World War II. Her perseverance and courage underpin this heart-warming and inspirational tale of the everyday challenges faced by the Japanese in the midst of a violent, war-torn country.

This beautiful yet poignant tale shows that even in the face of adversity and loss, people can come together and rebuild their lives.

Film director Sunao Katabuchi began his career working closely with Hayao Miyazaki before directing his own animated films, including Katabuchi’s acclaimed animated features Mai Mai Miracle and Princess Arete.

In This Corner of the World opens this August in select U.S. cinemas nationwide. For more information, please visit InThisCorneroftheWorld.com.
