Earlier today, a listing was added to the website for the Filmhouse Cinema in Edinburgh for a special screening of fantasy film Patema Inverted, which previously won both the Judge and Audience awards at last year’s Scotland Loves Anime festival. This new screening, which is scheduled for Saturday 22nd February will also feature a question and answer segment with the film’s director Yusuhiro Yoshiura.
The Filmhouse Cinema’s synopsis for the movie is as follows:
Patema has lived her whole life underground. Following a catastrophic attempt to harness alternative power sources, her community were driven to settle in a dark, cramped network of tunnels below ground. She roams them by torchlight, dreaming of adventures on the surface. But she gets more adventure than she bargained for when she sneaks into a forbidden area of the settlement that takes her above ground. Patema’s world is turned upside down – literally! Gravity pulls her away and she must rely on Age, a local boy, to help keep her on the ground. Gravity isn’t the only force at work here though: the pair are about to be pulled into something much bigger…
