In this Feb. 1, 2016 photo, Japanese director Hiromasa Yonebayashi smiles about his latest film "When Marnie Was There" with its poster during an interview at his office, Studio Ghibli, in suburban Tokyo. The coming-of-age story is familiar: A shy girl has problems fitting in and concocts an imaginary friend. The originality of the Oscar-nominated "When Marnie Was There" comes from how its hand-drawn images express the girl’s inner torment. Luscious hand-drawn animation is the trademark of Japan’s renowned Studio Ghibli, where the film’s director Yonebayashi worked for years. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi)
