The IFC Center in New York City will be screening Shinji Aramaki's Appleseed: Ex Machina sequel film on Friday and Saturday at midnight. The digital projection will be from a non-disc high-definition source and will have the Japanese soundtrack with English subtitles. This computer-graphics film is Aramaki's second interpretation of Masamune Shirow's Appleseed manga, but it tells a self-contained, standalone story. It focuses on a mechanized SWAT unit that protects a city of humans and clones.
