Studio Ghibli Fest 2018 - Grave of the Fireflies

August 12 (Dub), 13 (Sub) & 15 (Dub)

Studio Ghibli and Academy Award®-nominated Isao Takahata’s groundbreaking and emotional masterpiece, Grave of the Fireflies, comes to theaters on August 12, 13 & 15. This film has been universally hailed as an artistic and emotional tour de force.

As the Empire of the Sun crumbles upon itself and a rain of firebombs falls upon Japan, the final death march of a nation is echoed in millions of smaller tragedies. This is the story of Seita and his younger sister Setsuko, two children forced to fend for themselves in the aftermath of fires that swept entire cities from the face of the earth. Their struggle is a tribute to the human spirit. Presented in its digitally remastered and restored format, Grave of the Fireflies is one of the rare films that truly deserves to be called a masterpiece.

Studio Ghibli Fest is a nine month celebration that brings one beloved Ghibli film back to theaters per month for 3 days each, providing a rare opportunity for audiences to experience these films on the big screen.

Each film will screen in its English language dub on a Sunday matinee, followed by a Monday night screening in Japanese with English subtitles, and a Wednesday night screening of its English language dub. There are a number of theaters in the Boston area that will be playing the film. Click this link to find one near you!
