JCCC Anime Movie: Arashi No Yoru Ni - Benefit Screening for Japan Relief

Post  JCCC on Fri Apr 01, 2011 10:13 am

The JCCC is proud to present Japanimation for the whole family. Our film is Arashi no Yoru Ni - Stormy Night, based on the first in a series of children's books authored by Yūichi Kimura and illustrated by Hiroshi Abe. In 1995, the book won the 42nd Sankei Children's Literature Culture Award and the 26th Kōdansha Literature Culture Award. The film was directed by Gisaburō Sugii and was nominated for Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year.
It tells the story of a young goat named Mei who wanders into a barn one night seeking shelter from a storm. In the barn, the goat meets another refugee. The two can neither see nor smell each other, but nevertheless they huddle together fending off the cold, and begin to talk. Eventually they establish a friendship. The two decide to meet later and will recognize each other by using the password "one stormy night."

The next day, when they meet, Mei learns that his companion from the night before was a wolf named Gabu. Although they are natural enemies they decide to pursue their friendship in the face of much resistance for the other goats and wolves and, together, search for an "emerald forest" free from persecution.

The film is moving and funny with an important message on friendship and tolerance. It’s a great film for the whole family we hope you’ll join on May 1 at 2:00pm for what we hope will be the first of regular family screenings.
