ORIGIN: SPIRITS OF THE PAST


The rebirth of the future from the ashes of the past! Origin – Spirits of the Past available on DVD May '07 from Madman.

MELBOURNE, Monday, 30 April 2007 – Ages past, the Forest was awakened and the Moon unleashed a ravenous beast upon the Earth. Man cowered in fear...

Origin – Spirits of the Past begins three hundred years in the future. The landscape of the world has been drastically rewritten due to interference by man. The remnants of humanity are divided like never before as the Forest seeks revenge. A boy named Agito inadvertently sets in motion the destruction of all that is left when he revives a young girl, sent from the past to right humanity's wrongs. Toola calls forth ancient technology to reshape the future from the ashes of the past. Only by searching their souls and examining the past will Toola and Agito realize the origin of all things and unite mankind with the forest.

Origin – Spirits of the Past is the first stand alone feature from the renowned STUDIO GONZO. Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 30th Annual Annecy International Animation Film Festival and with strong environmental messages in the tradition of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, this is definitely a must see!
