POM POKO

POM POKO

Information on the activity

October 19, 2019 to October 20, 2019

Real estate development is rampant on the outskirts of Tokyo and fast eroding the countryside. Worried about their forest habitat, the tanuki — mythical shape-shifting racoon dogs — resolve to pull out the stops to halt the project . . . Directed by Japanese master animator Isao Takahata, Pom Poko addresses human activity-related environmental destruction by way of a magical, stirring fable. An ode to biodiversity and a manifesto for living in harmony with the planet, this sublime adventure and its prankster heroes will enchant young and old alike.
