The latest, and possibly last film from Hayao Miyazaki, the acclaimed Oscar-winning filmmaker behind Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro and Howl’s Moving Castle.

A young boy named Mahito yearning for his mother ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead. There death comes to an end, and life finds a new beginning. A semi-autobiographical fantasy about life, death and creation, in tribute to friendship from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.
