In collaboration with Vega Scene, Arthaus, DogA, and Pila we’d like to welcome you to an evening dedicated to Japanese pop culture where we’ll be arranging an outdoor cinema by Akerselva.
We’ll be showing Makoto Shinkai’s wonderful Your Name (Kimi non a wa). The critically acclaimed film has become Japan’s greatest animation success since Spirited Away in 2001.
Remember to dress according to the weather and to bring a blanket, a thermos, and some good friends. Pila will provide outdoor dining offering food with an Asian touch.
Place: The grassy hill between DogA and Akerselva
Time: Sept. 15 from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m., the film will start screening at around 8:30 p.m.
The film will be shown in its original version with Norwegian subtitles. Minimum age limit: 6 years
Sign up for the Facebook event here. (Only in Norwegian)
About Your Name
Participate in an out-of-body experience – about time, the course of fate and the dreams of two young people. Mitsucha and Taki have never met one another. She lives in the countryside and longs for big city living, while he’s yearning to trade the hustle and bustle of Tokyo for a simple country life. Everything is turned on its head when they one day suddenly change identities. Her soul has entered his body and his has entered hers. Is their connection strong enough to bring them together?
The Guardian gives the film top marks. Read the review here.
