In a time before mankind walked the face of the Earth there exists only Spring, so the world is always sunny and the animals live content and free of worry. Of all the animals, Crow is the most admired for his dazzling plumage and mellifluous voice. But then, for reasons unknown, the Spirit of the Seasons brings Winter to the forest for the very first time. As the temperature plunges, the once carefree animals realize that their very lives are in danger. Who among them could soar into the heavens and make the harrowing journey to persuade “The One Who Creates Everything by Thinking” to help them in their time of need? The answer is obvious, yet the solution not so, for what must Crow sacrifice to save his friends?

Event will feature world premiere of the 2D version of the film, followed by the making of the film and Q&A with filmmakers.

This event is free to the public but you must reserve seats to guarantee admission
