(Director: Isao Takahata / 1991 / 119min./ PG / Studio Ghibli Animation)
As 27-year old Taeko embarks on a holiday to the country she reminiscences about her childhood and journeys back to a time when she was only 15. Taeko recalls the major events that shaped her life into what it is now. In the present, Taoko longs for a change in her humdrum life as an office-worker in Tokyo.
When she arrives at her relatives' farm she finds herself attracted to an earnest young farmer. As Taeko flips between the past and the present, she realises that she must make important decisions to ensure her future happiness.
Beautifully evoking both the 1960s and 1980s, Only Yesterday is a double period piece and the quintessential drama of Japanese school-day nostalgia. An animated classic from Studio Ghibli available for the first time ever!
Presented by Consulate-General of Japan in Auckland in association with University of Auckland and The Japan Foundation.
