posted on by Andrew Osmond
The Glasgow Film Festival will include a screening of the film Time of Eve, by Patema Inverted director Yasuhiro Yoshiura, on Sunday February 8 at 5.15 p.m. The screening will be subtitled and is rated PG. It will be at the Glasgow Film Theatre on Rose Street (directions).
Before the screening on the same day, there will be a free 'Anime Drop in' event at 2 p.m. This is an 'informal anime themed drop-in session,' including drawing sessions with a manga artist, games and a cosplay costume maker to help attendees come up with their own designs.
The screening will be followed by a cosplay parade.
Time of Eve takes place in a world in which it's become common sense for people to treat androids like household appliances. Their appearance - indistinguishable from humans except for the ring over each android's head - has led some people to empathize unnecessarily with androids. Known as "android-holics", such people have become a social problem.
Rikuo, a high school student, has been taught from childhood that androids are not to be viewed as humans, and has always used them as convenient tools. One day Rikuo discovers some strange data in the behavior records of his family's household android, Sammy. Rikuo and his friend Masaki trace Sammy's movements, only to discover a mysterious cafe that features a house rule that "humans and robots are to be treated the same"...
