Wednesday, August 8th: ‘Summer Wars’

Summer Wars
Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens

2009, 114 mins. Directed by Mamoru Hosoda.

The story of a teen math prodigy who unwittingly unlocks a virtual world of avatars, this cyber-fantasy/sci-fi anime love story is a breathtaking tour of a visually brilliant alternate universe, and a clever parable about technology, family, and society. The winner of the Japan Academy prize for Animation, Summer Wars confirms Hosoda’s place in the new generation of great anime directors. (Rated PG)
