Makoto Kobayashi
In a bleak future, mankind has eradicated itself, leaving only women in a never-ending struggle to survive as the shadow of extinction looms over them. Among the ruins of Tokyo, two major factions of women war against each other's ideals. In this anime feature, the only hope for a humankind spiraling out of control lies with one woman who fights to save the future, but also holds a key to changing the past. Japanese with English subtitles. 120 min.

TOKYO SONATA
Kiyoshi Kurosawa
Deception and alienation rule the Sasaki household. Laid-off father Ryuhei is too proud to tell his family his job has been outsourced to China, oldest son Takashi is hiding some secret plans, young Kenji is secretly taking piano lessons against his father's wishes, and mother Megumi feels cut off from everyone. From the world-renowned suspense/thriller director comes a quiet, engaging drama of an average Tokyo family slowly unraveling. Cultural partner: The Japan Foundation119 min.

WALTZ IN STARLIGHT / HOSHIKAGENO WALTZ
Shingo Wakag
Returning to his quiet hometown in the countryside on a break from his job in Tokyo, Nobu finds there isn't much to do but take pictures—so he takes them everywhere he goes, using the camera to reconnect with his friends, his town, and especially his eccentric grandfather. A blend of fiction and documentary, Waltz is pro photographer Wakagi's loving journey through a photo album of small-town life, one that captures the brief, exquisite feeling that you can go home again. Cultural partner: The Japan Foundation 97 min
