The Themes of “Children of the Sea” with Director Ayumu Watanabe and CGI Director Kenichiro Akimoto

Director Ayumu Watanabe and CGI Director Kenichiro Akimoto discuss the central themes and what they hope audiences take away from Children of the Sea

From Japan’s cutting-edge STUDIO4°C (Tekkonkinkreet, MFKZ, Mind Game) and director Ayumu Watanabe comes Children of the Sea, a stunningly beautiful adaptation of Daisuke Igarashi’s prize-winning manga. Featuring a score from legendary composer and long-time Studio Ghibli collaborator Joe Hisaishi (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro), Children of the Sea uses every artistic element to brilliantly realize the manga’s central themes to the screen. 

Hear from Children of the Sea director Ayumu Watanabe, and CGI Director Kenichiro Akimoto on their key thematic takeaways, and why each viewer could walk away with a completely different experience.
