Raise the Castle! J-Film

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan and the Japan Commerce Association of Washington DC

In Raise the Castle!, a dead Daimyo returns to life in order to finally build the castle he could not complete in life. What he finds on the site of his dream castle, though, is a struggling community in need of a miracle to save itself from declining population and runaway industrialization. Soon the community members band together to build the world's largest, tallest, most elaborate--and only--castle made entirely of cardboard!
