Up next from ‘Studio Ghibli Fest 2018’, celebrating its 20th Anniversary, is “Grave of The Fireflies.” Directed by Academy Award®-nominated Isao Takahata, the 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.
