In an underground community, where the laws of physics depart from normality, Patema dreams of a life in the world above…
When she visits an area that is clearly off-limits she finds a way of accessing a new world, and begins an adventure of lost secrets and discovery.
The film is showing as part of a bi-annual event in which the BFI rounds up some of the best anime to come out of Japan.
'An engaging, nicely complex and challenging film, Yasuhiro Yoshiura’s anime Patema Inverted (Sakasama no Patema) manages to be both exciting and charming ... (an) enjoyable piece of storytelling (that) looks great on the big screen' Mark Adams - Screen International

We’ll aim to go for a drink after the screening to discuss the film.
I’ll send out an e-mail with meeting details to all those who have RSVPed shortly before the event.
