Join us on for a special anime screening presented by the AGA and our community partner ASAPA (The Alberta Society for Asian Popular Arts) on Thursday November 10 at the Art Gallery of Alberta. We are showing two distinct films, Millennium Actress 千年女優 and Yu-Gi-Oh! the Movie: The Pyramid of Light.
Released in the early 2000s, these great films continue to entertain audiences with their imaginative storytelling. As Kazuki Takahashi, the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh!, recently passed away, we’re screening the film to recognize his large impact in the world of manga, film and gaming.
We will be screening both films in our Ledcor Theatre. Enjoy one film for $10 or both for $15. AGA Members get in for free.
6pm | Yu-Gi-Oh, Yu-Gi-Oh! the Movie: The Pyramid of Light
This anime film is based on the Yu-Gi-Oh! Franchise created by Kazuki Takahashi and directed by Hatsuki Tsuji in 2004. (90 Minutes)
This film will be screened in English.
8pm | Millennium Actress (千年女優, Sennen Joyū)
This 2001 Japanese animated drama film is co-written and directed by the late, legendary Satoshi Kon and produced by Madhouse. Loosely based on the lives of actresses Setsuko Hara and Hideko Takamine, Millennium Actress tells the story of two documentary filmmakers investigating the life of a retired acting legend. As she tells them the story of her life, the difference between reality and cinema becomes blurred. (87 Minutes)
This film will be screened in Japanese with English subtitles.
