Japanimation: After Tezuka
Wed 28 Jan - Sun 1 Feb 08

To mark the 20th anniversary of his death, we present a series of screenings inspired by the work of influential animator Osamu Tezuka, the father of modern anime.

Tezuka died in February 1989 leaving behind a number of unfinished works in both comics and animation while his completed works included a huge range of material which had not been filmed or animated.

Since then, the company he founded has been promoting his legacy, both making new Tezuka animation and encouraging other artists to take his work in new directions.

Curated by Helen McCarthy and following on from last year's Tezuka season, this series of screenings presents an opportunity to assess work inspired by Tezuka and review his enduring influence.
