Classics of Studio Ghibli: ONLY YESTERDAY

Only Yesterday

Realizing that she is at a crossroads in her life, bored twenty-something Taeko heads for the countryside. The trip dredges up forgotten childhood memories which unfold in flashback to younger years: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self. A double period piece that beautifully evokes both the 1960s and 1980s and a quintessential drama of Japanese school-day nostalgia, ONLY YESTERDAY delves deeper into the real emotional experiences of girls and women than perhaps any animated film before or since. (118 mins.)

ONLY YESTERDAY screens Saturday, March 15 at 2pm as part of our Classics from Studio Ghibli series in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).

Advanced tickets are available for purchase here.
