This superbly paced, gritty and intelligent tale is set in 2019’s post-apocalyptic Neo-Tokyo where the mysterious military-scientific government’s secret weapons, telekinetic humans, battle the cyberpunk resistance and threaten to destroy the world.

With an unheard of billion yen production budget Akira set the technical benchmark on it’s original release and from this brand new HD digital print the definitive masterpiece is a must see on the  big screen.

Japan 1988 Dir. Katsuhiro Otomo 124 min. Subtitled.

Presented in association with Manga Entertainment and part of Watch Me Move a major exhibition of the history of animation at the Barbican Art Gallery from 15th June 2011.
