Seita and Setsuko - Grave of the Fireflies / Philip Mullen, Kickshaw Cakes






I chose Grave of the Fireflies as my inspiration as it is one of my favourite Studio Ghibli films. Widely regarded as one of the greatest war films, it focuses it's attention on the personal tragedies war gives rise to. It's two main themes, the effect of isolation from society and it's emphasis that war is society's failure to protect it's own people, still have valid importance in today's world and remind us that we should listen and learn from history rather than repeating it.
