‘Giovanni’s Island’ Gets Oscar Qualifying Run

Production I.G, the Japanese studio behind A Letter to Momo, has announced it will present an Academy Award-qualifying screening of its latest 2D animated feature, Giovanni’s Island. Theater goers in the Los Angeles area can catch the film Friday, November 7 at the Laemmle Town Center 5 in Encino. The historically inspired animation took home the feature Jury Distinction award at this year’s Annecy festival after opening in Japan back in February.

Directed by Mizuho Nishikubo and co-produced by the Japan Association of Music Enterprises, Giovanni’s Island is set during and just after World War II and follows two young Japanese brothers living on a northern island, the possession of which is contested by the Soviets. When the boys befriend a young Russian girl named Tanya they must overcome language barriers, history and politics.
