"Your Name." is an animation film that was the No.1 blockbuster in Japan in 2016. This animation was made by several top Japanese animation creators including the director Makoto Shinkai. A movie critic said that Your Name. attained tidemark in the history of animation regarding its wonderful description of natural and urban sceneries and body movements. A high school girl living in a rural area in Japan suddenly finds herself to become a high school boy living in Tokyo. She was astonished at first but gradually began to enjoy her "second life." However, a tragedy happens one day. The high school boy tried to save "Femme Fatale," and their adventure began. The story might sound weird, but the sense of destiny like this is deeply rooted in the Japanese aesthetic consciousness.

EMA and LABA present Amores Perros

Join Mikei Noriego (’19) and Diego de Haro (’18) for a screening and Q&A session of Amores Perros (light refreshments will be provided)

Amores Perros takes the form of a triptych, a composition made up of three parts. These three stories represent the three general levels of life in Mexico City. The first story explores what amounts to working class life in Mexico City. It depicts a quality of life determined by and confined within the economic limitations that are a fact of that social sphere. The second story sets itself to convey an upper class life that amounts to little more than a veneer of wealth, while the third story examines both the confined nature and the inherent freedom of the underclass of Mexico City.

The Grandmaster was the opening film at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival and was nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Costume Design at the 86th Academy Awards.

Anderson International Film Festival: El Norte

EMA and ALMA present El Norte.

Join Pascual Eley ('18) for a screening and Q&A session of El Norte (light refreshments will be provided).

Brother and sister Enrique and Rosa flee persecution at home in Guatemala and journey north, through Mexico and on to the United States, with the dream of starting a new life. It’s a story that happens every day, but until Gregory Nava's groundbreaking El Norte (The North), the personal travails of immigrants crossing the border to America had never been shown in the movies with such urgent humanism. A work of social realism imbued with dreamlike imagery, El Norte is a lovingly rendered, heartbreaking story of hope and survival, which critic Roger Ebert called a Grapes of Wrath for our time.
