Global Film Series: Weathering With You
Join the Office of Global Engagement and the University Libraries for the fall lineup of the Global Film Series. The series is a collaborative initiative to bring a variety of international and globally-focused films to campus.
From Makoto Shinkai, the director of the global smash hit Your Name., comes a critically-acclaimed new romantic animated drama set in the rain-soaked streets (and skies) of modern Tokyo. The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky.
This film is sponsored by the NC Japan Center and Morinaga America Foods.
