“A visually sensational two-hour extravaganza” – Roger Ebert
In a world eerily similar to our own, war between the Kingdom of Honneamise and its archrival, The Republic, seems inevitable. But even as the two nations’ rapidly evolving technology creates new ways to wage greater and more deadly forms of warfare, a small group seeks to use those same advances to propel mankind forward into the future and into space in their world’s first manned spaceflight program. For astronaut candidate Shirotsugh Lhadatt, it’s not just a journey beyond the reach of the atmosphere, but a personal odyssey as he grows from an aimless young man into a leader willing to put everything on the line…
This debut film from Japan’s acclaimed Gainax animation studio (creators of Neon Genesis Evangelion) features astounding visuals, a gripping storyline and music by the internationally acclaimed Ryuichi Sakamoto.
First released in 1987, Royal Space Force, along with Akira, was one of the very first films to introduce UK cinema-goers to the spectacular world of anime.
This screening will include an introduction from Satori Screen’s Peter Munford.
