My Neighbors the Yamadas / Hohokekyo tonari no Yamada-kun
Tuesday November 17, 2015 07:00 PM EST
From the venue:Miyazaki associate Isao Takahata applies his sensibility for realistic subject matter to the slice-of-life scenery of a celebrated Japanese newspaper comic strip. Unusual for a Studio Ghibli film, My Neighbors the Yamadas emulates the comic strip format by portraying its characters' everyday lives in a series of vignettes, and in a simplified, caricatured aesthetic with an all-digital watercolor pallet. The film will be introduced by series curator Dr. Ryan Cook.
