『鉄コン筋クリート』

In-Person Screening

Friday, September 16 at 7 pm

Screening followed by a Q&A with screenwriter Anthony Weintraub. Deep in the urban sprawl of a dilapidated pan-Asian cityscape named Treasure Town, streetwise orphans Black and White spend their days pickpocketing, soaring across rooftops and fighting petty turf wars. The arrival of a yakuza faction, however, brings a new set of challenges when plans to raze the metropolis and build an amusement park to replace it take hold. Widely energetic in its direction and innovative art style, Tekkonkinkreet adapts Taiyo Matsumoto’s celebrated manga into a startling vision—as well as the first major anime production to be helmed and written by non-Japanese talent.

Dir. Michael Arias, 2006, 111 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. With Kazunari Ninomiya, Yusuke Iseya, Yu Aoi.
