Wolf Children

The San Diego Asian Film Festival aka Pacific Arts Movement is having their spring showcase of films and one of the films they are showing is a anime called Wolf Children.

This looked like a good movie so I plan to see this on Sunday. The movie starts at 1pm so let's plan to meet at 12:15pm outside near the box office and then go in at 12:30pm. Cell phone signal inside the theater is very weak so once I go inside you probably won't be able to reach me. Afterwards if anyone wants to we can grab some food at Applebee's or some food place nearby.

Cost is about $13.16 total if you buy online here:


Tickets will be available at the box office for $11.50 starting April 19th

Student/Senior/Military is $9 and members is $8.00


See below for description from their website:

From Ozu to Yamada, Japanese cinema has had no shortage of great films about mothers, and WOLF CHILDREN may just be one of the most extraordinary. In college, Hana meets the love of her life. Though it turns out he’s the rare descendant in a line of Japanese wolf-people, Hana stays with him, and they have a daughter and son. With great tenacity and creativity, Hana learns to care for kids who have the plucky charm of young humans, but the unpredictability and appetite of growing puppies.

What makes WOLF CHILDREN so moving, and such a ripe allegory for mixed-race families, is Hana’s relentless commitment to protecting her children despite social stigmatization. With equal commitment, director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) tells the tall tale straight, evoking nostalgia, lush romance, and the most tender of kinships to produce one of the most surprisingly human films of the year. –Brian Hu

Cast: Aoi Miyazaki, Takao Osawa, Haru Kuroki

    I asked about getting a discount for our group, below is the response.

    To get the group discount you can order online through our website http://festival.sdaff.org/spring2013/films/wolf-children/. When you select 10 or more tickets the group discount is automatically applied. This would require one person to collect everyone's money to make one purchase, but we've found that this works the best, and is easiest, for most groups.

    So if we are all on board to get some sort of discount, I will need money and a minimum of 10 people.

      You have to talk to Louie since he is organizing the group discount. But I doubt they are going to sell out for this movie, so you can always buy it at the box office when you get there.

      Probably just going to let everyone buy it at the box office since apparently all the fees and all would not amount to much of a savings :( Was really hoping I could just get like 9 dollar tickets per person or something.
