The Glasgow Film Theatre will hold a screening of the action/SF cinema film 009 RE:CYBORG on Saturday April 6 at 1.25 p.m. It will be presented by the director Kenji Kamiyama. Kamiyama is also the director of Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East and Moribito Guardian of the Spirit, all animated by Production I.G.
The screening will be in 3D, and will be followed by a Q&A with both Kamiyama and the film's producer Tomohiko Ishii. (Details of the film below the trailer.)
On its facebook page, Anime Limited said, "If you attended the mystery screening at the GYFF in February then please message us here and we'll sort you out with a complementary ticket!" (The film was planned to be the mystery screening, but it was cancelled at the last minute.)
The film is made in CGI animation, and is based on Shotaro Ishinomori's classic science-fiction manga, Cyborg 009. Kamiyama's YouTube channel is streaming the trailer (above). The story begins when skyscrapers in London, Moscow, Berlin, and New York are destroyed by simultaneous bombings, causing widespread panic throughout the world. A group of nine cyborg fighters is reunited, but their former leader is living alone in Tokyo with his memories wiped.
