About the film:
THE GARDEN OF WORDS
(言の葉の庭 / Kotonoha no niwa)
by Makoto Shinkai, Japan 2013, 46 min., Japan. Original version with English UT, FSK 0
It is rainy season in Tokyo. The high school student Takao dreams of becoming a shoemaker and skips school to draw designs in an idyllic Japanese garden. There he meets a mysterious woman who obviously doesn't take her job too seriously either. Never before has rain been so beautiful: a poetic story in breathtakingly animated images.
Make a note of it: The 16th Nippon Connection Film Festival will take place from 24 to 29 May 2016 at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and Theater Willy Praml in the Naxoshalle in Frankfurt am Main.
