In This Corner of the World (この世界の片隅に)

Mai Mai Miracle director, Katabuchi Sunao, adapts Kono Fumiyo’s comic to an animated feature film. It depicts a young girl who married into a family in Hiroshima during the war resolutely living amid the escalating intensity of wartime destruction.

In 1944, 18-year-old Suzu goes to Kure City in Hiroshima Prefecture to wed naval officer Shusaku Hojo. As the intensity of the war heightens day after day and food supplies dwindle, Suzu manages to resolutely carry on with daily life through her ingenuity, that is, until the summer of 1945.

This sensitively portrayed and exquisitely hand-drawn animation tackles a historical period that is often depicted in film. Instead of retelling the same story as other films, Sunao delivers a beautiful and touching human experience that transcends time and cultural background.
