ACF 1721: GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES now available on Blu-ray

Here's great news about one of the most outstanding and powerful animes ever made:

Section23 Films is pleased to announce today’s release of GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES, with an all new English dub and for the first time on BLU-RAY! Called by many the best movie they have ever seen, GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES BLU-RAY releases today by Section23 client, Sentai Filmworks.

Title:                   GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES BLU-RAY 
Running Time:   89 min.

Synopsis: As the Empire of the Sun crumbles upon itself and a rain of firebombs falls upon Japan, the final death march of a nation is echoed in millions of smaller tragedies.  This is the story of Seita and his younger sister Setsuko, two children born at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and now cast adrift in a world that lacks not the care to shelter them, but simply the resources.

Forced to fend for themselves in the aftermath of fires that swept entire cities from the face of the earth, their doomed struggle is both a tribute to the human spirit and the stuff of nightmares.

Beautiful, yet at times brutal and horrifying.
