ON-GAKU: OUR SOUND To Screen at London International Animation Festival in December

Those looking for a different kind of cinematic anime experience, and to see a film before its wider-cinematic debut in Japan, will be excited to learn that Kenji Iwaisawa’s first feature-length-film ON-GAKU: OUR SOUND will be screening as part of the London International Animation Festival this December.

Specifically the film, which will be shown in Japanese, will be shown for one day on the 5th December 2019 as part of the festival and tickets are available to pre-book through the Rio Cinema website.

Winner Best Feature Film At The Ottawa International Animation Festival, ON-GAKU: OUR SOUND is a wildly original, trailblazing anime based on the Manga by Hiroyuki Ohashi, the film’s animation technique evolves as the story does, culminating in a rock ‘n’ roll spectacle for the ears and the eyes.

A summer day. Three outsider high school students who haven’t touched an instrument in their lives decide to form a band to express their teenage angst and impress girls. Does it matter that Kenji and his friends have never played an instrument before? Of course not – he’s got a guitar at home and his friends have a bass and drums so in the true spirit of punk, with blind confidence and absolutely minimal effort they start to make friends and influence people.

It’s worth noting that ON-GAKU: OUR SOUND is expected to release in Japan next year; so attendees to this screening event will be able to see an animated film before its Japanese release. Further information and ticket availability can be found via the official Rio Cinema website.
