    Breathtaking Anime Film CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES FROM DEEP BELOW Screening this Weekend in NYC

    Source: NY Int`l Children`s Film Festival press release Official Movie Site: This upcoming weekend, the NY Int`l Children`s Film Festival will screen the anime feature film CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES FROM DEEP BELOW (???????, Hoshi o Ou Kodomo, 2011) at the IFC Center in New York City. From the press release...

    CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES FROM DEEP BELOW Sat & Sun, April 21 & 22, 11:00am - IFC Center, 323 Sixth Avenue (at West Third) Recommended ages 11 to adult. 116 minutes, Japanese language with English subtitles. Makoto Shinkai is perhaps the world`s finest animator and his brilliant new feature delivers frame after frame of jaw-dropping photorealistic splendor: skyscapes of unspeakable majesty, a butterfly on a twig, a blade of grass -- all are rendered with such astounding delicacy and precision that you mourn their passing once the image has left the screen. The story is a modern-day Orpheus tale with a sci-fi twist that pays tribute to the great works of Hayao Miyazaki -- especially PRINCESS MONONOKE -- with its demonic spirit-gods and magnificent forest creatures. Asuna spends her afternoons alone in the mountains, using her crystal radio to listen to haunting songs from somewhere far away. One afternoon, a wild bear-like creature attacks and Asuna is saved by Shun, a boy with strange powers who comes from a mythical underworld beneath the Earth that is a gateway to the afterlife. When Asuna returns the next day to find him gone, she decides to leave the world of the living behind and follow him. CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES FROM DEEP BELOW contains animated violence and bloodshed, ghostlike creatures, and dark themes that may be inappropriate for young or sensitive audiences. Advance tickets may be purchased online at
