“THE TUNNEL TO SUMMER, THE EXIT OF GOODBYES”
PRESS CONFERENCE WITH FILM’S PRODUCTION STAFF
AND ORIGINAL AUTHOR AT OTAKON 2023
SCREENER ACCESS AVAILABLE FOR ATTENDING JOURNALISTS
To celebrate North American subtitled premiere of The Tunnel to Summer, the Exit of Goodbyes at Otakon 2023, a special afternoon press conference with award-winning film’s production staff and original author will be held on Saturday, July 29 prior to the screening event later that evening.
This critically acclaimed sci-fi drama has been wowing audiences internationally since its release in Japan last September. Most recently, The Tunnel to Summer, the Exit of Goodbyes received top honors at the 2023 Annecy International Animation Festival in France where it took home the coveted Paul Grimault Award.
The Tunnel to Summer, the Exit of Goodbyes will be distributed by HIDIVE and released later this year in select theaters across the U.S. and Canada.
Kaoru Tono heard a rumor: The laws of space and time mean nothing to the Urashima Tunnel. If you find it, walk through and you’ll find your heart’s desire on the other side…in exchange for years of your own life. One night, Kaoru just so happens to find himself standing in front of a tunnel that looks suspiciously like the one the rumor describes. He finds himself thinking of Karen, the sister he lost in an accident five years ago. To Kaoru’s surprise, he’s been followed by the new transfer student Anzu Hanashiro, who promises to help him experiment with the mysterious tunnel—but what does she want from Kaoru in exchange? And what will he have left to give, after the tunnel’s done with him?
