As the end of her life approaches, an elderly woman encounters a strange spirit from a nearby forest. Drawing on the patience and minimalism of Japanese cinema and anime, Lira's Forest is filled with mystery and wonder. It’s no surprise that this little gem premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews.
