2019 Japanese animated film Children of the Sea (海獣の子供) in Pittsburgh, June 13 and 15.


The 2019 Japanese animated film Children of the Sea (海獣の子供) will play in Pittsburgh on June 13 and 15 as part of this year's GKIDS series. A synopsis from the distributor:
When Ruka was younger, she saw a ghost in the water at the aquarium where her dad works. Now she feels drawn toward the aquarium and the two mysterious boys she meets there, Umi and Sora. They were raised by dugongs and hear the same strange calls from the sea as she does. Ruka’s dad and the other adults who work at the aquarium are only distantly aware of what the children are experiencing as they get caught up in the mystery of the worldwide disappearance of the oceans’ fish.
It will play locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront and the Cinemark theaters in McCandless, Monroeville, and Robinson, and tickets are available online. The June 13 show is dubbed in English while the June 15 show is in Japanese with English subtitles.
