A Silent Voice Director Naoko Yamada to Attend Glasgow Film Festival 2017 Screening

Glasgow, UK January 31, 2017 - Anime Limited are excited to announce the attendance of A Silent Voice director Naoko Yamada at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival. She will be attending the screening of the film on Thursday, 23 February.

As part of this rare trip abroad to promote her film, Ms Yamada will also be taking part in a Q&A session following the screen of the film at the Glasgow Film Theatre hosted by Scotland Loves Anime veteran MC and anime expert, Jonathan Clements.

Andrew Partridge, President of All the Anime, says: "We are extremely privileged and excited to be able to bring a director of such vision as Ms Yamada to the Glasgow Film Festival alongside the GFF. It’s a great opportunity to see one of the top anime films of 2016 in the cinema with the director and an excellent chance to ask questions about this touching and sensitive film. It really is not to be missed, and I am personally looking forward to it."

About the Film

Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as the teasing continues, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion. When they leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other again... until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. He wants to atone for his sins, but is it already too late...?
