Japanese animated films arrive at the Sala San Luigi in the “Anim&core” review

Sala San Luigi launches “Anim&core”, the new series of Japanese animated films, a genre that has profoundly marked world cinema and which stands out for its original visual layout, narrative richness, a reborn sense of wonder and rejection of the reassuring plot ” good versus bad.” These characteristics make it a tool for discovering human nature and a proposal for great entertainment, overcoming the prejudice of being reserved only for the youngest. With this in mind, the Sala San Luigi offers six appointments, with screenings in the original language with subtitles in Italian on Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon.

The first film, scheduled for Thursday 19 January at 20.30, is One piece red film, the new anime feature film directed by Gorō Taniguchi based on the iconic manga by Eiichirō Oda, which sees the Straw Hat crew together with the most notorious pirates of the Seven Seas reunite for a new adventure: to reach a mysterious island, where the singer Uta, the best known in the world, will perform. The film will be introduced by Matteo Piscaglia “The Pirate Narrator – One Piece: 20 years (+1) of adventures.” The screening will be repeated on Sunday 22 January at 3.30pm.

This will be followed by the proposal of the film The Wind Rises directed by Miyazaki, founder together with Takahata of the legendary production company Studio Ghibli, scheduled for Thursday 2 February at 20.30 and Sunday 5 February at 15.30. The film tells the life and tragic love story of Jirō Horikoshi, the aeronautical engineer who during the Second World War designed numerous fighter planes used by the Japanese in war actions against the Americans, including the Mitsubishi A6M “Zero ”, used in the Pearl Harbor attack. As a boy, the protagonist meets in his dreams the Italian engineer Giovanni Battista Caproni, a pioneer of aeronautical engineering. The last film, scheduled for Thursday 16 February at 20.30 and Sunday 19 February at 15.30, will be Akira, progenitor film and father of all Japanese animations, a film based on the homonymous manga, considered Ōtomo’s absolute masterpiece. Akira is part of the group of anime that, with their success, made Japanese animation popular in the West. To better understand the importance of this film, it is enough to know that the Wachowski brothers were inspired by it to create the Matrix and that Warner Bros. bought the rights by engaging Leonardo Di Caprio as the main actor. The film is set in the post-atomic 2019 of a Neo-Tokyo torn by violence and clashes between government and rebels, where two childhood friends are drawn into the criminal underworld of Neo Tokyo and are forced to fight for survival.

The entire festival is organized in collaboration with the Torre Nera and Casaba Association, whose experts in oriental cinema and culture will introduce the viewing of films on Thursday evenings. Furthermore, at the entrance on all the evenings of the review it will be possible to taste a selection of Barrino beers and buy comics from the EtaBeta comic shop, both collaborators of the review.
Single ticket: 7.00 euros. Info: www.salasanluigi.it
