GIOVANNI'S ISLAND To Make International Debut In New York
Folks in New York will be the first to see Production I.G's Giovanni's Island after it opens in Japan. Director Nishikubo Mizuho's film will be part of the lineup of the New York International Children's Film Festival, running between March 7th and 30th. The screening on March 22nd at the SVA Theatre will be the animated film's international premiere.
Here is how the NYICFF describes the film:
An elegance and beauty permeates the hand-drawn animation and symphonic score of the film, creating a timeless drama where moments of emotional impact are tempered by animated flights of whimsy and fantasy, as the brothers prove much larger in spirit and strength than their rosy-cheeked, small frames would suggest. There is a true to life sense of the loss of home and family, as the film shows how kids readily adapt to even the most difficult circumstances, the way they are asked to take on larger responsibilities, and how they are blameless for the difficult
situations that adults sometimes create for them.
