Short Peace to Screen at Hiroshima Fest


Short Peace to Screen at Hiroshima Fest

Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira) will be presenting parts of his new anthology project Short Peace at the upcoming Hiroshima Intl. Animation Festival. Produced by Sunrise, Short Peace features work by several famous Japanese creators, such as Redline’s Katsuhito Ishii, Super Robot Wars’ mechanical designer Hajime Katoki, and Freedom’s Shuhei Morita.

Otomo will be screening his 13 minute segment titled Hi-no-youjin, which tells the story of an Edo-era fire fighter who reunites with his childhood love during the Great Fire of Meireki, which destroyed more than half of the capital. Shuhei Morita’s segment is entitled Tsukumo, which already premiered at the Annecy Festival last June. Tsukumo is described by the producers as ” One night in the 18th Century, deep in the mountains, a man loses his way and comes across a small shrine. As he enters, the space transforms into a room of a different world.”

The Hiroshima Animation Festival runs August 23-27 at Aster Plaza. Hi-no-youjin will screen on the last day as part of a showcase of contemporary Japanese animation.
