Pom Poko (1994), 119 minutes [PG]
Director: Isao Takahata
An animated fantasy film that, consistent with Japanese folklore, focuses on a community of highly sociable and magical shape-shifting raccoons. Desperate to prevent their forest home from being destroyed by urban development, they form a resistance with disastrous consequences.
As the human city development encroaches on the raccoon population’s forest and meadow habitat, the raccoons find themselves faced with the very real possibility of extinction. In response, the raccoons engage in a desperate struggle to stop the construction and preserve their home.
Food served from 7.00pm. Screenings start at 8.00pm
