The Hayao Miyazaki retrospective held at the Lumière Institute this spring was an extraordinary success, testifying to the passion Lyon audiences have for the Japanese filmmaker. For this reason, Wild Bunch / Goodfellas and Studio Ghibli have chosen the Lumière film festival and Lyon to unveil the premiere of the new film by the master of Japanese animation to the French public.

THE BOY AND THE HERON
The film has been seen by over 4.9 million viewers in Japan (figures as of August 27) since its theatrical release on July 14. The French premiere will take place during The Lumière film festival on Tuesday, October 17.
The Boy and the Heron will be screened at the opening of the Toronto International Film Festival and the San Sebastian Film Festival.
After his mother dies in a fire, Mahito, a young boy of 11, must leave Tokyo to live in the countryside in the village where she grew up. He moves in with his father in an old manor house on a huge estate, where he encounters a grey heron who gradually becomes his guide, helping him along as he makes discoveries and asks questions to understand the world around him and unravel the mysteries of life.
