Details

This exquisitely crafted, action-packed fable from Wolf Children director Mamoru Hosoda, one of the true masters of Japanese animation, follows nine-year-old Kyuta. After the death of his mother, Kyuta stumbles into a parallel world inhabited by supernatural creatures. The bear-like warrior Kumatetsu decides to accept Kyuta as his apprentice, and their bond grows as they train together in martial arts and sword-fighting. It’s the beginning of a friendship that will be tested to the limit when the worlds of humans and beasts collide. GFF16
