Okko's Inn Unclassified 15+
Waka Okami Wa Shogakusei!

Language: Japanese with English subtitles

View Trailer

Veteran anime filmmaker and former Studio Ghibli animator Kitarō Kōsaka brings his magic touch to this fable about a young orphan girl running her grandmother’s inn with some supernatural help.

This charming new feature from veteran filmmaker Kitarō Kōsaka – a leading animator on Akira, Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and countless others – follows the adventures of Okko, a young girl dispatched to live with at her grandmother in the countryside after her parents die in a car crash. While tending to chores at grandma’s traditional Japanese inn, built atop an ancient spring, Okko befriends a group of mischievous ghosts that only she can see.

With the help of her spooky new pals, Okko transforms grandma’s inn and becomes something of a minor celebrity in the process, while Kitarō delivers a moving reflection on grief, selflessness and inclusivity – even when your company includes phantom spirits!

“Disarming … reminiscent of the indelible My Neighbor Totoro.” – Pittsburgh Magazine
