The good folks from Anime Limited have just sent us a reminder about their soon to be released film Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms. It's due to hit the cinemas nationwide across the UK on Wednesday 27th June 2018. Anime Limited have sent us a look at the new poster and also a UK trailer.
Press release as follows:
MAQUIA: WHEN THE PROMISED FLOWER BLOOMS
NEW TRAILER & POSTER HAS LANDED!
IN UK CINEMAS WEDNESDAY 27TH JUNE
A touching tapestry of the meetings and partings in life, Mari Okada's directorial debut is a profound human drama and stunning record of an emotional adventure
The people of Iolph are known for two things: their youthful longevity and peaceful lives weaving tapestry. When that is disturbed and their home thrown into chaos by those believing that their blood gifts longer life, Maquia loses not only her friends, but a place to return to. Lost in both mind and body, she stumbles into a dark forest and happens upon Aliel, an orphaned baby boy. Together, the two embark on an emotional journey of the bond between the ageless and the mortal.
WE LIKE IT BECAUSE
An intimate human story set atop a fantasy stage, "Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms" is a heartfelt tribute to emotions most will experience and a perfect example of the creative renaissance sweeping Japan since the release of "Your Name".
P.A. Works' spellbinding visuals are a stunning testament to the visual power and creative freedom of animation. The accomplished display of lighting and colour palettes in particular give scenes an emotional power embraced by the performances of the cast.
Last year saw the breakout success of Naoko Yamada's breathtaking "A Silent Voice" and we're delighted to once again have the opportunity to give a platform to the work of more talented women in anime. After resonating well with patrons of the prestigious Glasgow Film Festival, it can now be experienced and enjoyed by more moviegoers across the UK.
