Anime Fest at the Modern: A Letter to Momo at

A Letter to Momo was written and directed by Hiroyuki Okiura (a veteran animator who has worked on films ranging from Akira (1988) to Your Name (2016)), assisted by a group of Studio Ghibli alumni.

When 11-year-old Momo loses her father, the only thing she is left with is a letter he had started to write her, but only got as far as "Dear Momo." Moving with her mom back to her mom's hometown on an island, Momo discovers their house is haunted by three "yokai" (Japanese goblins). Though at first frightened, Momo ultimately becomes friends with the yokai and they help her adjust to her new life. But more than that, they may be the key to the lost message from Momo's father.
