Synopsis

Set in Japan, during preparations for the 1964 Olympic Games, From Up on Poppy Hill continues Studio Ghibli's tradition of beautifully animated, compelling stories. Umi is a teenager, living with her grandmother on the picturesque Poppy Hill. She occupies herself watching the boats and raising flags, always half-hoping to see her father, who died during the Korean War. Meanwhile, her friend Shun is working to prevent the demolition of a treasured clubhouse. As romance blossoms between Umi and Shun, a shocking revelation threatens their friendship.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
