The fist entry in  The Hippodrome Cinema’s monthly anime film series!

GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES is a 1988 Japanese animated film written and directed by Isao Takahata and animated by Studio Ghibli.

Set in Japan during World War II, the film tells the story of Seita, a young boy who has to take care of his younger sister Setsuko when their mother dies. Based on a 1967 semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, it is commonly considered an anti-war film, but this interpretation has been challenged by some critics and by the director.

“An emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation.” – Roger Ebert

 

92 min | Drama, Animtation| Directed by: Isao Takahata|

A harrowing but meticulously observed look at teenage lives in the era prior to the lives in the early 1990’s, “Super Dark Times” marks the feature debut of gifted director Kevin Phillips, whose critically acclaimed 2015 short film “Too Cool For School” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Zach (Owen Campbell) and Josh (Charlie Tahan) are best friends growing up in a leafy Upstate New York suburb in the 1990s, where teenage life revolves around hanging out, looking for kicks, navigating first love and vying for popularity.

When a traumatic incident drives a wedge between the previously inseparable pair, their youthful innocence abruptly vanishes. Each young man processes the tragedy in his own way, until circumstances grow increasingly complex and spiral into violence. Phillips dives headlong into the confusion of teenage life, creating an evocative atmosphere out of the murky boundaries between adolescence and adulthood, courage and fear, and good and evil.

“This generations MEAN CREEK or DONNIE DARKO…”
– Brad Miska, “Bloody Disgusting”
