Synopsis

A group of elementary school children play in their classroom, imagining that they are on a boat in the ocean. This fantasy becomes reality, and soon all the students find themselves stranded in the deep blue sea, looking for their own Moby Dick. Some of the kids want to harpoon the whale, others want to take its picture, and many of the kids are afraid and just want to return home. In the end, a gentle Totoro-esque whale shows up and plays with the children until their fantasy ends and they are again back in school.

i saw this in the museum like half a year ago... its pretty good. the kids fantasize about hunting a whale in their kindergarten. they actually become friends with it tho. no pro whaling propaganda here haha. the museum is good btw. i had pancakes and ice coffee. they gave me a bunch of flags with the pancakes. you can also see a lot of the ghibli design process and climb stuff. probably pretty cool if you are a kid. there were a lot of books, well i obviously couldn't read those. its a very short movie, im not sure how much i can say. read more
