The film distributor Gkids announced that Makoto Shinkai 's latest animated feature, Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below, will be screening at New York City's IFC Theater. Show times are scheduled for the following two weekends, April 21 and 22 as well as April 28 and 29, at 11:00 am. Ticket purchases are available Movietickets.com
Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below centers on Asuna, a girl who spends her solitary days listening to the mysterious music emanating from the crystal radio she received from her father as a memento. However, she embarks on a journey of adventure to find a mysterious boy she just met, and thus comes to know the cruelty and beauty of the world, as well as loss.
The film is the latest work by Shinkai, the creator of Voices of a Distant Star, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, and 5 Centimeters Per Second. Takayo Nishimura (5 Centimeters Per Second, Before Green Gables) designed the characters and oversaw the animation process. Takumi Tanji (5 Centimeters Per Second, The Place Promised in Our Early Days) directed the art, and musical composer Tenmon (5 Centimeters Per Second, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, Voices of a Distant Star) collaborated with Shinkai again on this project. The film held its North American premiere at Otakon last July.
