In This Corner of the World

In collaboration with Shout! Factory Films, Otakon will host a special screening of the crowd-funded award-winning feature animated film, In This Corner of the World. In attendance, as guests of Otakon, will be the producer, Masao Maruyama, and character designer, Hidenori Matsubara.

The award-winning story of In This Corner of the World follows 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.

Screening times and dates will be published when the Otakon 2017 schedule goes live.
