Public, Staff, Students

This event has been postponed until a later date. Apologies for and disappointment or inconvenience caused.

Grave of the Fireflies is a Japanese animated drama from Studio Ghibli.

A devastating meditation on the human cost of war, this animated tale follows Seita (Tsutomu Tatsumi), a teenager charged with the care of his younger sister, Setsuko (Ayano Shiraishi), after an American firebombing during World War II separates the two children from their parents. Their tale of survival is as heartbreaking as it is true to life. The siblings rely completely on each other and struggle against all odds to stay together and stay alive.

The film will be screened in Japanese with English subtitles.

Organised by the Centre for Modern History, Department of International Politics, SASS
