Kaleidoscopic Visions: AKIRA

Akira

Katsuhiro Ohtomo’s influential work reinvigorated Western interest in Japanese anime and still feels cutting-edge to this day. Adapting the voluminous cyberpunk manga series of the same name, AKIRA depicts a post-apocalyptic Neo-Tokyo on the brink of destruction once again. Set against this backdrop, motorcycle gang members Tetsuo and Kaneda find themselves ensnared in a conspiracy much deeper than their nightly skirmishes with a rival gang of biker clowns, one that threatens to transform their friendship, Neo-Tokyo, and Tetsuo forever. (124 mins.)

AKIRA screens Saturday, July 5 and Sunday, July 6 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Kaleidoscopic Visions: Animation Classics series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
