Week 6 Movie Night - 05/09

Week 5 down and we officially enter mid-semester: now is an excellent time for our next movie night!

For Movie Night, we're going to be holding a double feature with 5 Centimeters per Second (http://anidb.net/a4568) followed by The Cat Returns (http://anidb.net/a679).

A love child of Makoto Shinkai, 5 Centimetres per Second is a story about a boy and a girl.  But it's no ordinary romance - this is a story of patient hope and gentle suffering; of joyous reunion and love rend asunder; of a tale at once melancholic, yet optimistic; mournful, yet without despair.  A moving portrayal of the deepest human bond nurtured by adversity, this one's a must-see for anime and romance enthusiasts alike.

The Cat Returns, Studio Ghibli's spiritual successor to the stunning Whisper of the Heart we screened last semester (don't worry, no past knowledge required for full enjoyment of this one), is the story of a girl who ends up trapped in the magical world of cats.  Despite being the closest thing to a Ghibli sequel there is, it is well-able to stand amid the pantheon of quality Ghibli movies.

Date: Friday the 5th of September

Time: Start around 6:30 PM, should finish both flicks by around 9:00 PM

Where: Latham Theatre, Redmond Barry

We'll likely hold a quick break inbetween the two movies around 7:30-7:45 for about five minutes - utilise it for toilet breaks or a witty wisecrack or two. Since the interval probably won't be sufficient to go out to grab something to eat and then return in time for the next feature, we recommend getting something before the event or to bring something along for the event itself!

 

PS: There may be a chance that the room we booked doesn't have anyone from 5:30 PM and should that be the case we'll likely be hanging around there - feel free to join us! (It'd probably be a good time to get some dinner too!)
