In this Corner of the World – Sunao Katabuchi

Besides the retrospective on Mamoru Hosoda, which will take place at Cinema City Alvalade, from March 12 to 17, Japan returns to MONSTRA with a wide-ranging schedule.

In a portrayal of the day-to-day lives of Japanese people and their daily struggles during the 2nd World War, “In this Corner of the World”, created by Sunao Katabuchi, is a deeply touching and inspiring film. Above all, it is a story about the maturity of a nation with a fascinating cultural structure, in the shape of a diary that announces the passing of time in an imminent countdown leading to tragedy. Suzu, the protagonist, is a character who emphasizes the noble, mature and joyful Japanese spirit after moving to a military city near Hiroshima.

Come watch this timeless classic today, March 9, at 10pm in Room Manoel de Oliveira of Cinema São Jorge.
