Yukon Arts Centre

In this classic Studio Ghibli animation, forests are filled with groups of magical tanuki, mischievous raccoon-like animals from Japanese folklore that are capable of shape-shifting from their standard raccoon form to practically any object. The tanuki spend their days playing idly in the hillsides and squabbling over food – until the construction of a huge new Tokyo suburb clears the nearby forest and threatens their way of life. English dubbed version will be screened. Common Sense Media Recommends Pom Poko for ages 9 or 10+ “Anime tale with environmental message; some peril, sadness.” https://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/pom-poko
