Real estate development is rampant on the outskirts of Tokyo and fast eroding the countryside. Worried about their forest habitat, the tanuki — mythical shape-shifting racoon dogs — resolve to pull out the stops to halt the project . . . Directed by Japanese master animator Isao Takahata, Pom Poko addresses human activity-related environmental destruction by way of a magical, stirring fable. An ode to biodiversity and a manifesto for living in harmony with the planet, this sublime adventure and its prankster heroes will enchant young and old alike.Presented by URBANIA
