Profound human drama anime MAQUIA is set to get its cinema release on Wednesday the 27th of June
The people of Iolph are known for two things: their youthful longevity and peaceful lives weaving tapestry. When that is disturbed and their home thrown into chaos by those believing that their blood gifts longer life, Maquia loses not only her friends, but a place to return to. Lost in both mind and body, she stumbles into a dark forest and happens upon Aliel, an orphaned baby boy. Together, the two embark on an emotional journey of the bond between the ageless and the mortal.
Last year saw the breakout success of Naoko Yamada’s breathtaking “A Silent Voice” and we’re delighted to once again have the opportunity to give a platform to the work of more talented women in anime. After resonating well with patrons of the prestigious Glasgow Film Festival, it can now be experienced and enjoyed by more moviegoers across the UK.
