NEW SCREENINGS ADDED – LEEDS & DUNDEE
Leeds have announced their line-up – and we’re pleased to say that Giovanni’s Island is in their Anime Day as well as playing outside of it at a date to be listed in due course. Meanwhile you’ll be able to find Giovanni as well as in School screenings at Discovery Film Festival in Dundee, it’ll also screen to the public on Sunday the 8th.
What Discovery has to say about Giovanni’s Island:
Vibrant hand-drawn animation, an emotive score and an element of the fantastical all contribute to the telling of a powerful story. Beautiful and sad at the same time, the film presents the horrors of war through the eyes of children, as they see the devastating impact on their own family and friends. We are once again indebted to our friends at Scotland Loves Anime for giving us access to this award-winning example of the finest in contemporary Japanese anime.
