International Premiere

Have you heard of summer ghosts? The urban legend tells of the ghost of a young woman who appears when fireworks are lit. Tomoya, Aoi, and Ryo are high school students who are unable to find their place in the world. Each has their own reasons for meeting the ghost, and one warm summer night, when life and death intersect, where will their emotions take them? Summer Ghost is the directorial debut of loundraw, who previously illustrated I Want to Eat Your Pancreas and Josee, The Tiger and the Fish.

Screening as part of Japan 2021: Over 100 years of Japanese Cinema is a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
