To celebrate the upcoming Ghibliotheque: Presents Your Name event at Stratford Picturehouse on Wednesday 18 January, we've partnered with Japan Centre to give away a meal for two at Shoryu, who specialise in Hakata tonkotsu ramen from Fukuoka, Japan.
The screening will be introduced by Michael Leader and Jake Cunningham, hosts of the animation-focused podcast Ghibliotheque, whose new book, The Ghibliotheque Anime Movie Guide, takes readers on a journey through Japanese feature-length animation from Akira to Your Name and beyond.
Michael and Jake will also be selling and signing copies of the book after this screening.
Mitsuha is the daughter of the mayor of a small mountain town. She's a straightforward high school girl who lives with her sister and her grandmother and has no qualms about letting it be known that she's uninterested in Shinto rituals or helping her father's electoral campaign. Instead she dreams of leaving the boring town and trying her luck in Tokyo.
Taki is a high school boy in Tokyo who works part-time in an Italian restaurant and aspires to become an architect or an artist. Every night he has a strange dream where he becomes... a high school girl in a small mountain town.
