Location: Building 3, room 201, ECU Mt Lawley

POWA Meets at ECU Mt Lawley to screen not one, but two short films by loved anime film director Makoto Shinkai – his 2007 film “5 Centimetres per Second” and his 2013 film “The Garden of Words”.

This free screening will be taking place in room 3.201 at ECU in Mt Lawley – not our usual screening location in Joondalup – with our doors opening at 6:30PM, and the screening to start at about 7PM. Both films are just about an hour in length each, so we expect the screening to have finished by approximately 9PM. Our usual selection of Drinks and Snacks will be available for purchase, as well as an opportunity to buy POWA Membership at a discounted $5 price.

“5 Centimetres Per Second is a tale of two people, Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari, who were close friends but gradually grow farther and farther apart as time moves on. They become separated because of their families yet continue to exchange contact in the form of letters. Yet as time continues to trudge on, their contact with one another begins to cease. Years pass and the rift between them grows ever larger. However, Takaki remembers the times they have shared together, but as life continues to unfold for him, he wonders if he would be given the chance to meet Akari again.”

“The Garden of Words is about Takao, a high school student who dreams of becoming a shoe designer, who decides to skip school one day in favour of sketching in a rainy garden. He has no idea how much his life will change when he encounters Yukino – who seems adrift in the world. Despite the difference in their ages, they strike up an unusual relationship that continues and evolves, with random meetings in the same garden on each rainy day.”

We hope to see you there!
