AMAZING ANIME

PATEMA INVERTED
PATEMA INVERTED
SAKASAMA NO PATEMA
2013, GKIDS, 98 min, Japan, Dir: Yasuhiro Yoshiura

Patema lives in an underground civilization of tunnels and caverns; though a princess, she has been repeatedly warned away from a forbidden zone. When she discovers a shaft leading to the outside world, she learns why - gravity is reversed for her there, and Patema is in constant danger of falling into the sky. This highly original film from the writer-director of TIME OF EVE will turn all your assumptions about anime upside down. “Breathtaking! Stunning! Vertiginous!” - Village Voice. “Delightful!” - The New York Times. “Visually stunning! Gorgeously drawn!” - The Hollywood Reporter. In Japanese with English subtitles.
