Episode 214: The Garden of Words

In week three of Makoto Shinkai Director Month, we dig into his 45-minute short film from 2013 about a young student and a mysterious woman who meet under the rains of Tokyo in a beautiful garden gazebo. It’s a lovely, slice-of-life tale with Shinkai’s signature striking weather animation and incredible sound design that helps pull you in emotionally. We also reveal the 2020 Feeler’s Choice Award nominations and tell you how you can participate in voting on this year’s awards!
