'Maquia' Fantasia Festival Debut, US and Canada Screenings Revealed

This summer Mari Okada's directorial debut Maquia: When The Promised Flower Blooms makes its way West.  The film's US distributor Eleven Arts Anime Studio has announced that the film will receive its Canadian premiere as part of the official selection of the prestigious Fantasia Festival in Montreal (running between July 12-August 1).

The titular Maquia is one of the Iorph, a race of peaceful beings know for their weaving and their extremely long lives. When her people are attacked by invaders hoping to uncover their secrets, she escapes. While on the run, she encounters a lost human boy she names Ariel- a fateful meeting that will change both their lives, forever.

From the official press release:

"A renowned screenwriter, Maquia marks the directorial debut for Okada, diving into the dilemmas of motherhood, adolescence, femininity, and leadership. Okada wraps all these poignant themes into a sweeping epic with well-developed characters, emotional gravitas, stunning visuals, and an exhilarating score by composer Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell). 


Maquia will open in the United States on July 20, 2018. Eleven Arts have now confirmed that the film will also be released in Cineplex theaters in Canada on the same day. Anime Limited will release the film in the UK and Ireland on June 27.


The initial list of screening venues is below. More may be added in the coming weeks, check the website for the latest.
