From the legendary and highly celebrated Studio Ghibli (PONYO, SPIRITED AWAY) comes this uniquely inspired coming–of–age story from Goro Miyazaki and Hayao Miyazaki. Set in 1963, this lovingly hand–drawn film centers on the budding romance of Umi and Shun as they join forces to save their high school’s ramshackle clubhouse from demolition. The top–grossing Japanese film of 2011 and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, FROM UP ON POPPY HILL captures the innocence of new love and the beauty of Yokohama’s harbor and lush surroundings with its rich color palette, stunning exteriors, sun–drenched gardens, bustling cityscapes and painterly detail.
Hayao Miyazaki, Keiko Niwa
