Teen Film Series: Your Name

BHPL is excited to offer a film series just for teens. We will be watching films from a variety of genres including indie/science fiction, action, anime/foreign, horror, comedy, and drama. Several of our films are based on young adult novels and they explore everything from social justice issues, to mental health, to time travel!

January’s film is our anime/foreign film offering “Your Name”. “I feel like I’m always searching for something, someone.” Haven’t we all felt that at some point in our lives? A sense of displacement from our daily lives, and a search for something that would anchor us to a more commonly perceived sense of normalcy? The Japanese phenomenon “Your Name” (it was the highest grossing film of last year in the country and the highest grossing anime film of all time worldwide, passing “Spirited Away”) is about this highly relatable sense of looking for something, someone, someplace. And so much more.

Our Teen Film Series welcomes teens of all ages, with a suggested age range of 13 and up. The movies we watch together cover a wide range of subjects and styles, and we encourage teens and their families to research them in advance and decide which are right for you and your teen. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
