17-year-old Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu when she encounters a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door.” What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly drawn by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob…. Doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster. The stars. The sunset. The morning sky. Within that realm, it was as though all time had melted together in the sky–guided by these mysterious doors, Suzume’s journey to close doors is about to begin.

In Japanese with English Subtitles.

The screening on Thu 11 May at 2pm is relaxed for people living with dementia.

  • BBFC Ratings Info (May Contain Spoilers)

    Threat and horror

    The teenager and her companion race against time to prevent natural disasters, by battling with fantastical columns of energy. At one point, the fate of Tokyo hangs in the balance, but each disaster is averted. There are regular scenes in which small earthquakes strike, but never causing damage or injury.


    There is infrequent use of mild bad language (‘crap’, ‘piss’), as well as other terms such as ‘damn’, ‘hell’ and ‘OMG’.


    A scene takes place in a Japanese hostess bar, but this is portrayed discreetly. There is a reference to a man being a ‘playboy’, as well as other infrequent moments of rude humour and innuendo.

    Injury detail

    There are infrequent bloody images indicative of minor injuries which are not shown on screen.

    Alcohol and tobacco

    An adult character smokes cigarettes.


    A teenager’s grief for her mother, who died in a tsunami when she was a little girl, is a theme of the film. There are upsetting scenes when she recalls the day of the disaster – including scenes in which the little girl weepingly searches for her mother – but there is no visual depiction of the tsunami on screen.
