The anime postwar period drama Giovanni's Island will be shown on November 9 during the Discovery Festival at Dundee: tickets are available here. The showing is at 3p.m. at Dundee Contemporary Arts.
(The film will also be shown on the same day as part of the 'Fanomenon Anime Day' in Leeds, details here.),
Production I.G's Annecy-winning hand-animated Giovanni's Island film tells the story of two brothers living on the island of Shikotan. Their family and the people of the island hear of Japan's loss in the war and are told not to worry. However, their island gets caught in the middle of the continuing conflict in the west and is invaded by Russian soldiers. Giovanni's Island received the Satoshi Kon Prize for Excellence in Animation and tied for the Audience Award at the 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal.
