This event has ended.

This exhibition presenting a range of works by Makoto Shinkai, from “Voices of a Distant Star” to “Your Name,” marks the 10th anniversary of The National Art Center, Tokyo. Shinkai debuted commercially with his short film “Voices of a Distant Star” in 2002. Since then, he has spent the last 15 years producing refined “stories of a man and a woman who cross their paths in a beautiful and magnificent world,” receiving widespread attention from audiences across the board. Shinkai’s journey will be introduced here through his production materials, such as storyboards, plannings, drawings, arts, and visual images, as well as other objects that enable visitors to experience his world. This is an opportunity to enjoy an in depth experience of Shinkai’s charming animations.
“Voices of a Distant Star” marks his first self-production, while “The place promised in our early days” - which received the Mainichi Film Concours Award - can be considered his first feature length work produced with a professional team. Other key titles include “5 Centimeters Per Second,” which remains popular to this day, the young adult fantasy film “Children Who Chase Lost Voices,” “The Garden of Words,” which tells a story of visual literature in the digital era, and “your name,” which celebrated record-breaking success right after its release last year.



from November 11, 2017 to December 18, 2017
