"Solid from start to finish."

"There's nothing quite like a quality anime anthology, and if there's one group of creators you can count on to deliver, it's Studio Ponoc." - Otaku Magazine

Studio Ponoc, the new animation studio founded by two-time Academy Award nominee Yoshiaki Nishimura (The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, When Marnie Was There) and featuring many artists from the venerable Studio Ghibli, made an immediate splash with their acclaimed debut film Mary and the Witch's Flower. The studio returns with Modest Heroes, an ambitious anthology of three thrilling tales created by some of the greatest talents working in Japanese animation today.

Together, the stories (Kanini & Kanino, Life Ain't Gonna Lose, Invisible) explore ideas of heroism in everyday life, and the infinate potential of the short film format allows the directors to experiment with breathtaking, action-packed visuals, concise human drama, and gorgeous fantasy worlds in this unforgettable showcase.
