August film "The Boy and the Beast".

(Director: Mamoru Hosoda, 2015, 119min. Rating: PG, Voice: Koji Yakusho, Aoi Miyazaki, Shota Sometani, Suzu Hirose).

An unlucky boy and a lonely beast...

A coming-of-age action fantasy tale about Kyuta, a misfortunate, lonely boy who lives in the human world, and Kumatetsu, a lonesome beast who lives in the imaginary world. The relationship, at times stormy, between the beast and his young apprentice gradually grows stronger.

Overcoming their solitude, they come to realise how much they need each other. Their fortunate encounter will be the beginning of an adventure that goes beyond your imagination...

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan, The University of Auckland, The University of Waikato, Massey University, The Japan Foundation.
