Time of Eve Creator's Patema Inverted Film Teaser Streamed
Patema Inverted takes place in an underground world where tunnels extend everywhere. Even though they live in dark and confined spaces, people wear protective clothes and lead quiet and enjoyable lives. Patema (voiced by Yukiyo Fujii), a princess in her underground village, loves to explore the tunnels. Her favorite place is a "danger zone" that her village prohibits people from entering. Even though she's scolded, Patema's curiosity can't be held back. No one ever explained what the supposed danger was. On her usual trip to the "danger zone," Patema faces unexpected events. When hidden secrets come to light, the story begins to unfold.
The film was an official selection at this week's Annecy, the world's largest animation festival, in France. Annecy hosted the film's world premiere on Thursday.
The film was scheduled to open last year but was postponed until this fall. Four prologue episodes titled Patema Inverted: Beginning of the Day were posted on the video streaming site niconico last year.
