The Center for Asian American Media is co-sponsoring a free outdoor screening of Mamoru Hosoda's acclaimed film, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, with English subtitles at San Francisco's Japantown Peace Plaza on September 19. The film reinvents Yasutaka Tsutsui's classic children's novel about a girl (Riisa Naka) who gains the ability to leap backwards in time. As she explores her power, she discovers that even the tiniest action has unforeseeable ripple effects. Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Evangelion, Nadia - Secret of Blue Water) designed the characters in this 2006 film which has won awards in Japan, Spain, and France. The trailer is available here.
