There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Wild, psychedelic, bizarre – a blow to the head. Following one of the most unfortunate deaths in film history, a meek man, once victimized by gangsters is propelled into post-life omniscience. A madcap, experimental explosion from cult anime icon, Masaaki Yuasa. An insane, disorienting adventure with a buxom love interest, her sister, a crazy old man and the unluckiest man ever – trapped in a whale. Very weird.

Please note: this film is definitely intended for adults-only, and contains many scenes of violent imagery, profanity and animated nudity.
