(1988, 90 Minutes, UR; in Japanese with English subtitles)

As part of the Crocker’s Day of Remembrance, honoring the resilience of Japanese culture and recognizing the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the imprisonment of Japanese Americans, join us for a screening of the animated masterpiece Grave of the Fireflies. A brother and his younger sister are orphaned when the United States firebombs their home in Kobe, Japan. Considered by critic Roger Ebert as one of the greatest films ever made, and “an emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation,” Grave of the Fireflies is a must-see. Co-presented by the Sacramento Japanese Film Festival, the film will be introduced by festival Director Barbara Kado. Space is limited, and advance registration is recommended.
