Cleopatra (Adv 15) + Satori Screen Intro | QUAD - Derby | Friday, 12. January 2018

Cleopatra (Adv 15)
Japan 1970 112 mins
Dir: Osamu Tezuka & Eiichi Yamamoto

In this pioneering anime, one of the very first aimed at a mature audience, three intergalactic travellers from the future are whisked back to the court of the ancient Egyptian queen by time machine, in order to combat a plan by an alien race to alter the course of human history. Featuring stunning visuals alongside a gripping storyline, it was the brainchild of manga legend Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy, Phoenix) who wished to prove that animation was not solely for children’s entertainment. Previously seldom seen outside of Japan, it has now been restored and re-mastered, and Satori Screen is proud to host one of the first ever UK cinema showings of this important and influential classic.

This screening will include an intro by Satori Screen's Peter Munford and no ads/trailers.

Presented through arrangement with Third Window Films.
