Summer Dreams

In this collection of films from some of animation’s most imaginative creators, it’s not just the heat that’s out of control. Summer Dreams takes inspiration from the season of school vacations and languid reflection to spotlight films that wrestle with characters caught in liminal states, on the verge of transformation. Ghosts abound and reality takes on a hazy, dreamlike quality, stirring new friendships and life-changing stories of coming of age. Featuring work from Keiichi Hara, Shunji Iwai, loundraw, and more.
