GKids, an American film and animation distributer, will be screening "From Up On Poppy Hill" and "A Letter to Momo" preview at their special Animation Showcase from Nov 14-18.
From Up on Poppy Hill is scheduled to screen at Laemmle NoHo 7 on November 16 at 19:30 and on November 17 at 21:45, a special preview from the upcoming film, A Letter to Momo. The film will be released in theatres, in 2013.
"Set in Yokohama in 1963, "From Up On Poppy Hill" is a lovingly hand-drawn film centred on Umi (voiced by Sarah Bolger) and Shun (voiced by Anton Yelchin) and the budding romance that develops as they join forces to save their high school’s ramshackle clubhouse from demolition. The top-grossing Japanese film of 2011 and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, From Up on Poppy Hill captures the innocence of new love as well as the beauty of Yokohama’s harbor and lush surroundings. With its rich color palette, stunning exteriors, sun-drenched gardens, bustling cityscapes and painterly detail, From Up on Poppy Hill provides a pure, sincere, and nuanced evocation of the past, and marks yet another creative triumph for Studio Ghibli."
