Yamanaka by Rintaro

Sadao Yamanaka was one of the leading Japanese directors of the 1930s, yet only three of his films were found. They will be re-released thanks to Bac Films. To pay tribute to this filmmaker, widely considered a genius, the master of Japanese animation Rintaro (Galaxy Express 999, Metropolis) has adapted one of his scripts into a magnificent short film, which he will be introducing in person!

Our thanks to Bac Films
