About this Event

Rating: PG; Runtime: 98min

Synopsis

Four-year-old Kun’s life gets turned upside down when he meets his new baby sister Mirai (meaning “future”) for the first time. Having only known life as the apple of his parents' eyes, Kun is very quick to become jealous of his new sister, whose arrival steals both his spotlight and his parents’ attention. One day, in the midst of a jealous rampage he runs to the backyard to sulk where he discovers a mysterious magical time-travelling gateway. Through it, he meets strangers from the past and future, including a teenage Mirai! Together, the two go on a fantasy-filled adventure to uncover their family’s history and the love that has been passed down through generations. But one question remains–why did teenage Mirai come to find Kun?

Drawing from his own personal experiences as a father, this latest feature film by Mamoru Hosoda ( Wolf Children, Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time ) is a nostalgia-evoking, touching film with gorgeous visuals, as told through the eyes of a 4-year-old.

Official Opening Reception

To formally welcome the Japanese Film Festival 2019 to Hobart, guests attending the screening of Mirai are also invited to an opening reception event prior to the screening, commencing at 6pm.

The reception will include the presentation of prizes to the winners of the 2019 Tasmanian School Anime Poster Competition. Light refreshments will be available.
