Showing of “Your Name” today at 6 p.m.

The LLCC Arts and Humanities Department invites you to join them for a showing and discussion of the film “Your Name” (Kimi No Na Wa) today, April 19, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Trutter Center.

“Your Name” (2016) is an animated film directed by Makoto Shinkai. It has become one of the highest grossing films ever in Japan and is considered a masterpiece about time, the thread of fate and the hearts of two young souls. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. One night they unexpectedly switch places, each waking up in the other’s body. This strange occurrence continues to happen randomly, and Mitsuha and Taki must adjust their lives around each other. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages and, most importantly, an imprint.

Prior to the film showing, the Trutter Museum will have culturally relevant artifacts from the Trutter collection on display in the reception area. Film series attendees are encouraged to come early to enjoy the art and history.

Through a Different LensThe event is the third and final installment in this semester’s film and discussion series entitled “Through a Different Lens: Cultural Perspectives through Film,” which is hosted by Ashley Green and Paul Van Heuklom, LLCC professors of English, and Joseph Hoff, LLCC professor of Spanish. There is no charge to attend.
