Harucon, an anime and manga convention in Rishon LeZion, Israel, will include a screening of Makoto Shinkai's feature film, Children who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below (Hoshi o Ou Kodomo), page here (in Hebrew). The screening will be on Thursday, March 8 at 1:00 p.m. at the Rishon LeZion Cultural Exhibition Center, at Jabotinsky 16, Rishon LeZion (map).
Registration for the convention is 45 NIS for the one-day convention, but registered members of the Anime and Manga Association of Israel (AMAI), who organizes the event, pay a discounted rate of 40 NIS.
It is the latest work by Shinkai, the creator of Voices of a Distant Star, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, and 5 Centimeters Per Second. Takayo Nishimura (5 Centimeters Per Second, Before Green Gables) designed the characters and oversaw the animation process. Takumi Tanji (5 Centimeters Per Second, The Place Promised in Our Early Days) directed the art, and musical composer Tenmon (5 Centimeters Per Second, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, Voices of a Distant Star) collaborated with Shinkai again on this project.
