Coming next in June, from the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of “Spirited Away,” and Academy Award®-nominated director Isao Takahata, is an action-packed ecological fable about the clash between nature and human civilization: “Pom Poko.”
Pom Poko” is about the tanuki (raccoon dogs) of Tama Hills who find their fun-loving community under attack when their quiet woodlands are threatened by encroaching developers looking to create still more houses and shopping malls. Desperate to survive, the tanuki band together and learn the ancient art of transformation, shape-shifting into a comical variety of humans and spirits as they undertake a last-ditch plan to scare away the humans and save their home, in this deeply affecting, funny and heartfelt look at what it means to live in the modern world.
