The New York Int'l Children's Film Festival, which will run from March 4 to March 27, will show the science fiction anime movies Welcome to the Space Show and Time of Eve. Both films will have English subtitles.
Welcome to the Space Show debuted last February during the Berlin Film Festival, where it screened alongside Mamoru Hosoda's Summer Wars. Directed by Koji Masunari (Read or Die) and animated by A-1 Pictures, Welcome to the Space Show is a science-fiction adventure in which four children from rural Japan are stranded in space during summer camp. Aniplex of America currently streams the first 22 minutes of the movie on its official YouTube channel. This film will have three showings on Sunday, March 6; Saturday, March 12; and Sunday, March 20.
The Time of Eve film is a compilation of the original six-part Internet animated series which began in 2008. The story of Rikuo and his home robot Sammy explores the interaction between man and machine, questioning the theme of artificial intelligence and the moral implications of a human/android relationship. This film will have two showings on Saturday, March 12 and Saturday, March 19.
