Now Showing: The Wonderland

Coming to US cinemas via Eleven Arts Anime Studio from January 31 is The Wonderland,  the new film from director Keiichi Hara (Miss Hokusai, Colourful). Based on the fantasy novel by Sachiko Kashiwaba, it follows teenager Akane who is taken to the titular fantasy world via a trapdoor in the basement of her aunt's shop. The film originally screened under the title of Birthday Wonderland and screened at numerous festivals including Fantasia and Scotland Loves Anime.

Quirky and beautifully animated, and featuring character designs by renowned Russian artist Ilya Kuvshinov, it's an original take on some well-trodden territory. We called it "a weird and wonderful trip through a fantasy land" in our review.

Check out the currently confirmed list of screening venues below.  More venues may be added, and Canadian screenings are to be confirmed- check the website for the latest details.
