Eleven Arts Anime Studio to Release Maquia: When The Promised Flower Blooms
U.S. distributor sets release for celebrated debut from Mari Okada.
(LOS ANGELES, CA — April 10, 2018) — ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio has licensed the North American distribution rights to Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms, directed by Mari Okada, known for The Anthem of the Heart and Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day.
Maquia is the directorial debut of renowned screenwriter Mari Okada. The film dives into the dilemmas of motherhood, adolescence, femininity, and leadership. Okada wraps all these poignant themes into a sweeping epic with well-developed characters, emotional gravitas, stunning visuals, and an exhilarating score by composer Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell). The film, hot off its initial February release, quickly made its way across the globe to premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival, where it captivated audiences. Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms will carry the torch for films like Your Name and In This Corner of the World, infusing pure artistry and pathos into anime.
ELEVEN ARTS has set July 20th, 2018, as the next theatrical release for the film. Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms will be presented with the original Japanese dialogue and English subtitles.
