Regardless of the fan's knowledge of Japanese animation from a passive SPEED RACER fan to full-fledged Otaku visitors are being asked to prepare theirself for a unique visual feast. This tribute to the Japanese animated feature film will examine the origins, history, and influences of this prolific art and industry. The tribute will include the running of over a dozen clips mostly in 35mm. Some surprise clips which should be quite interesting to fans are also being arranged for showing.
Clips from such seminal films as AKIRA, GHOST IN THE SHELL, PRINCESS MONONOKE, PERFECT BLUE, LAPUTA: CASTLE IN THE SKY and PON POKO will receive rare U.S. big screen presentation. The evening will illustrate the diversity of genres displayed in Anime, the specific Japanese approach to animation, the effect Anime is having on world culture, and highlight the work of several of Anime's most respected artists, writers, and animators.
The panel of commentators will consist of animation historians, distributors, and filmmakers from both sides of the Pacific. Confirmed participants (subject to availability) currently include:
