Singapore animated film about pioneer manga artist Yoshihro Tatsumi.

The animated film Tatsumi will be released on DVD on May 28 by Soda Pictures. Made in Singapore, Tatsumi is about the pioneering manga artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi, who wrote adult ("gekiga") stories in strip form. Directed by Eric Khoo, the film adapts five of the artist's manga stories, threaded together with Tatsumi's account of his struggle to make a living after World War II. (The autobiographical material comes from Tatsumi's manga, A Drifting Life.) The U.K. distributor, Soda Pictures, uploaded an 82-second trailer to youtube, embedded above, to coincide with the film's limited U.K. release in January.
