Contemporary anime superstar Makoto Shinkai's global breakthrough hit, Your Name., became one of the highest grossing films of all time when it premiered in Japan in 2016 and solidified Shinkai's status as an important new voice in anime. It tells the story of high schoolers Mitsuha and Taki, complete strangers living separate lives. One night, Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving messages. When a dazzling comet lights up the sky, Mitsuha and Taki decide to find a way to meet each other.

Makoto Shinkai is one of the most innovative minds working in anime right now and one of the claimants to the title of 'new Miyazaki.' With Your Name.'s emotionally compelling story and stunning animation, it's easy to see why so many anime fans have made that comparison. The film is based on Shinkai's own book and, as usual for the multi-hyphenate director, he also wrote the screenplay and did the editing. Like his debut feature, Voices of a Distant StarYour Name. is truly a labor of love.

The Sun. 5/29, Wed. 6/1 and Thu. 6/2 screenings will be presented in Japanese with English subtitles. The Sat. 5/28 and Mon. 5/30 screenings will be dubbed in English.
