  Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms [read more]
  Anime day
  A touching tapestry of the meetings and partings in life, Mari Okada's directorial debut is a profound human drama and stunning record of an emotional adventure sure to resonate with the audiences of the prestigious Glasgow Film Festival and beyond.

The people of Iolph are known for two things: their youthful longevity and peaceful lives weaving tapestry. When that is disturbed and their home thrown into chaos by those believing that their blood gifts longer life, Maquia loses not only her friends, but a place to return to. Lost in both mind and body, she stumbles into a dark forest and happens upon Aliel, an orphaned baby boy. Together, the two embark on an emotional journey of the bond between the ageless and the mortal.

An intimate human story set atop a fantasy stage, Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms is a heartfelt tribute to emotions most will experience and a perfect example of the creative renaissance sweeping Japan since the release of Your Name.

International Premiere at Glasgow Film Festival 4th March, 2018. Coming to cinemas nationwide March 2018. Try the trailer above.
