In This Corner of the World, the highly anticipated animated feature film written and directed by Sunao Katabuchi, is coming to US theaters this summer. Based on the award-winning manga by Fumiyo Kouno, the film is enjoying commercial and critical success in Japan. Recently it was won the 40th Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year (ironically, beating out Your Name) and film magazine Kinema Jump named it the best Japanese movie of 2017 (the first animated film to win this award since My Neighbor Totoro.) It also won the Hiroshima Peace Film Award at the Hiroshima International Film Festival and Best Movie and Jury Special Award at the Yokohama film festival, amongst other awards.
