Light of the River
We have something just right for a Saturday Morning! Come enjoy a delicious breakfast and the wonderful Japanese animated film Light of the River. All festival programing, including the breakfast is free of cost.
Light of the River tells the story Tarta and his light furred little borther Chichi who are river rats. When a construction project displaces their community, their family must leave their home and journey into the unfamiliar city. In this playful and touching animation, we discover that wherever we may wander, there is nothing like the comfort of home.
Bio: Animator Tetsuo Hirakawa was born in 1979 and is a former member of the Tokyo animation studio Madhouse. Having done key and in-between animation for numerous productions, he made his directorial debut with Light of the River.
