Comica Festival

Comica Social Club



Japanese-American guest Misako Rocks! demonstrates her Disney manga hits Biker Girl and Rock and Roll Love, previews her new trilogy and introduces an exclusive big-screen showing of anime movie Tekkonkinkreet based on Taiyo Matsumoto’s dazzling dystopian manga.

Following the live-action adaptation of his ‘Ping Pong’ manga, the genius of Taiyo Matsumoto comes to the screen once again in this high-energy, visually thrilling anime adaptation of his beloved tales of ‘Black and White’. The intricately detailed film follows the adventures of two orphan street-kids - Black and White - as they take on the corrupt adult inhabitants of crazed, crime-ridden city Treasure Town, while remaining fiercely loyal to one another at all times.

Dir. Michael Arias, Japan 2006, 100 mins, subtitles.

Where: Cinema 1, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Monday, November 5, 2007 - 8.45pm
