Anime drama screening Wednesday and Thursday at Chapter Arts Cinema

The anime postwar period drama Giovanni's Island will be screened at Cardiff's Chapter Arts Cinema (directions) on Wednesday November 12 (10.30 a.m. and 8.30 p.m.) and Thursday November 13 (6 p.m.).

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.
