Director : Isao Takahata / Japan / 137  / Japanese / 2013

One day in the forest, the simple bamboo cutter Okina finds a baby in the folds of a bamboo shoot, and brings the infant home to his wife Ona. Naming the child Kaguya and raising her as their own, the couple soon discovers that their daughter is truly not of this world: she grows at an unnaturally quick rate. Discovering a cache of gold and lavish silks in the forest that he takes as a sign of Kaguya’s royal heritage, Okina moves her to a lavish
home in the capital city, where she is besieged by suitors — but Kaguya soon proves to have a higher destiny.
