Cinema Under the Stars Today: 'The Girl Who Leapt Through Time'

September 19, 2008

Join Hyphen today for Cinema Under the Stars, presented by the Center for Asian American Media and the Japantown Merchants Association. We're going old school, bringing back the outdoor screenings and the couples making out.

Maybe not the couples making out, but I hear there will be hot chocolate! Early arrival highly suggested. Seating is first-come, first-served. Also, it will be a typical San Francisco evening with temperatures in the high 50s. Please dress accordingly and bring those colorful blankets.

8PM - 10PM | Friday, September 19

WHERE: Peace Plaza in Japantown
Post Street at Buchanan Street
San Francisco, CA 94115

WHAT: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
Director: Mamoru Hosada
98 minutes | Japanese with English subtitles

When 17-year-old Makoto gains the ability to leap backwards through time, she sets about preventing personal mishaps. Yet she soon realizes that changing the past isn't so simple! Can she use her new powers to shape the future of herself and her friends? From production company Madhouse, THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME is an absorbing, beautifully crafted anime. Featuring a talented crew who worked on such classics as Princess Mononoke and The Grave of the Fireflies, this film is destined for modern classic status.
