The highlight of this event will be the movie entitled ‘Spirit away’, which is directed by Miyazaki Hayao in 2001. The film won the Golden Bear award in 2002, and was among the Oscar nominees for best-animated feature film, at the 75th annual Academy Awards ceremony.
’Spirit away’ tells about the adventures of a 10-year-old girl, Chihiro, who is lost at an abandoned amusement park. Japanese directors, filmmakers and producers, including popular voice actress Mitsuki Saiga and guitarist Kazuya Nishikawa, will arrive in Hanoi for an exchange with Vietnamese audience.
The Japanese Culture Department, the Japanese Cultural Exchange Centre of Vietnam, the Cinematographic Department and the National Cinema Center are jointly holding the event.
Free tickets are available at the Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange from 2 pm on January 5, 2011.
