Time of Eve イヴの時間 劇場版

@JFT, Free Admission, RSVP required

Thursday November 30, 6:30 PM

TONIGHT, therapeutic robot PARO will be in attendance!

 

Directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura

2010, 106 minutes

Cast: Jun Fukuyama, Kenji Nojima, Rie Tanaka

Drama/Science Fiction/Animation

The story is set in the in the not-too-distant future, where androids are considered home appliances. High school student Rikuo (Jun Fukuyama) discovers some odd behavioral data in his family’s household android Sammy (Rie Tanaka), and is led to a cafe named “Time of Eve.”

Originally a six episode online sci-fi animation, now re-edited and brought to the big screen with all-new additional scenes. By depicting the bond between a human and an android, the film also explores the issue of respect for the dignity of others. Creator of the on-line version, Yoshiura Yasuhiro has gone on to create, script, and direct this feature version as well. Yoshiura first gained recognition for his self made animation Pale Cocoon.
