Only Yesterday Special Screening
Come join Ai-Kon and the Japanese Cultural Association of Manitoba for dinner and a movie as we serve up some piping hot ramen and enjoy Only Yesterday, a classic Studio Ghibli film!
About Only Yesterday: Unmarried career woman Taeko Okajima (Miki Imai) takes her first extended trip outside her native Tokyo when she travels to rural Yamagata to visit her sister’s family during the annual safflower harvest. On the train, Taeko daydreams about her pre-adolescent self. As her vacation progresses, she has extended flashbacks about the frustrations and small pleasures of her childhood, and wonders if her stress-filled adult life is what the young Taeko would have wanted for herself.
