Mai Mai Miracle Maimai shinko to sennen no maho(Club)
Inspired by her grandfather’s stories, nine-year-old Shinko journeys into the past through her magical method of time travel: conjured entirely by her vivid imaginings of the past. Upon making a new friend with the upper class Kiiko, they quickly discover they both have a fascination with history and what happened in the past, and transport back to the town a thousand years before, almost as if their dreams could become a reality.
Mai Mai Miracle is presented as part of the 2013 Japan Foundation’s touring film programme Once Upon A Time In Japan – Reinventing the past through the eyes of Japanese contemporary filmmakers.
