ONLY YESTERDAY (Isao Takahata, 1991)

In lyrical switches between the present and the past, a young woman contemplates the arc of her life and wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self. From Academy Award-nominated director Isao Takahata (The Tale of the Princess Kaguya) and general producer Hayao Miyazaki, Only Yesterday is a masterpiece of time and tone, rich with humor and stirring emotion, and beautifully animated by one of the world’s most revered animation studios.
