Anime Movie Classics Week

Escaflowne: The Movie
Directed by: Kazuki Akane, Yoshiyuki Takei
A theatrical rendition of the classic series which features music by the Yoko Kanno of Cowboy Bebop fame, and produced by animation studio Sunrise. A depressed girl named Hitomi is whisked away to a fantastical land where she meets young King Van and learns that she alone has the power to summon Escaflowne - a warrior/protector that can end the fierce conflict that has been raging between the forces of light and dark.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Counterattack of Char
Directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino
The final chapter of the first Gundam saga. The foundations of peace between the Federation and the Neo Zeon Army are shattered as the notorious Zeon leader Char Aznable threatens the Federation with nuclear devastation. Only Amuro Ray and the state of the art mobile suit, Nu Gundam, can stop them!

Directed by Hiroyuki Okiura
Created and written by the acclaimed Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell-the Movie, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence), a powerful allegory which centers on a very different Tokyo than the one we know today, where a totalitarian government rules with an iron fist. Constable Fuse of the Capital Police’s Special unit defies his orders to shoot and kill a young protestor and as a result is "re-conditioned" as a soldier. As Fuse's world comes crashing down around him, he is challenged to do what is right in the face of an oppressive regime.
