Patema Inverted

Patema Inverted

Japan, 2013, 98 Minute Running Time
Language: Japanese

ENDS THURSDAY.

Young Age lives in a militant society where he and his friends are brainwashed to never look up and fear the “sinners who fell into the sky.” One day, Age steals away to look up and finds a young woman, Patema, hanging upside down from a tree, her gravity completely opposite from his. Coming from an industrial complex hidden deep underground, her curiosity has taken her beyond the community’s boundaries. From this lyrical beginning, the two begin an adventure to learn the truth behind their two worlds, eventually finding there are secrets that threaten the government’s totalitarian rule. Given the universal truth that youth are always going to move beyond the boundaries that society sets for them, Patema and Age are marvelous protagonists, perfectly driving the quest to uncover the lies around each turn of the plot. With a great concept and an engagingly intelligent story, director Yasuhiro Yoshiura coordinates equally incredible animation that takes full advantage of the inverted perspectives of its characters. Patema Inverted is a must-see for more than just anime fans, a wonderful animated sci-fi adventure that will delight audiences looking for substance with their spectacle.

In Japanese with English subtitles.


DIRECTOR: Yasuhiro Yoshiura
