Animezing!: Robot Carnival
Presented by the Japan Information & Culture Center, Embassy of Japan
A celebration of art, animation, and robots!
Crawling across a desiccated landscape, the Robot Carnival comes barreling its way to the JICC this summer!
A visual treat for the eyes as well as the mind, Robot Carnivalis an anthology collection of nine short films, many done by animators before they got their feet wet in directing. From funny to dramatic, artistic to entertaining, each story reaches towards the furthest corners of time and space to bring you a tale of robots, and the people who make them. Whether you have a love for great hand-drawn animation, an appreciation for fine storytelling, or just like robots, this anthology is a must!
Featuring segments from Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira), Koji Morimoto (Mind Game), and more! Music by award-winning composer Joe Hisaishi (Spirited Away, Departures)!
This film is unrated but contains scenes of violence Recommended for ages 13+.
