Join the Japan Society for a Netflix Watch Party! We will be watching the recently released Japanese animated film “A Whisker Away.”
Directed by Junichi Sato and Tomotaka Shibayama, this film follows a young girl and those around her as they struggle to grow up and find their identities. A heartfelt coming of age story that captures the difficulties of youth and the “masks” we wear when interacting with others, this family-friendly film is enjoyable for all ages.
You can read more about the movie here.
