(2013) dir Hiroaki Ando, Hajime Katoki, Shuhei Morita, Katsuhiro Otomo [68 min; in Japanese with English subtitles]
In 1995, the legendary creator of Akira, Katsuhiro Otomo showcased the work of upcoming superstars of the anime world in the epic anthology film MEMORIES. Now, Otomo’s spotlight shifts to a fresh generation of master creators with an all-new anthology of visionary films, SHORT PEACE.

A lone traveler is confronted by unusual spirits in an abandoned shrine in the 2013 Oscar-nominated POSSESSIONS. A mysterious white bear defends the royal family from a red demon in the brutal GAMBO, directed by Hiroaki Ando with character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion). In the action packed A FAREWELL TO WEAPONS, Mobile Suit Gundam designer Hajime Katoki helms Otomo’s tour-de-force saga of men battling robotic tanks in apocalyptic Tokyo, while grandmaster Otomo himself assumes the directorial reigns for a spectacular tale of love, honor and firefighting in ancient Japan with the multi-award-winning COMBUSTIBLE.
