Pom Poko

PG Animation

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Pom Poko at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

POM POKO is a tale of the clash between modern civilization and the natural world. The Raccoons of the Tama Hills are being forced from their homes by rapid urbanisation. As it becomes harder to find food and shelter, they decide to band together and fight back. Once they perfect the ancient art of transformation, they use their power, often in hilarious ways, to try to scare off the advancement of civilization. Will it be enough? Taking its cues from traditional folklore, POM POKO is a fun, sweet and mischievous film, but nonetheless carries a strong environmental / urban overdevelopment issue that is as relevant today as it ever was.
