Anime Film Festival 2019: Mirai

Director: Mamoru Hosada
Duration: 98 min

From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (SUMMER WARS, Wolf Children) comes an Oscar-nominated tale of the importance of family across generations.

When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning “future”), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun’s entire family. As his mother returns to work, and his father struggles to run the household, Kun becomes increasingly jealous of baby Mirai... until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from his family's past and future – including his sister as a teenager.

Together, Kun and teenage Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story. But why did Mirai come from the future in the first place?
