Vexille Screening @ JICC

The Japan Information and Culture Center, Embassy of Japan, in collaboration with the DC Anime Club, will be presenting "Vexille" in its original format (japanese with english subtitles) on Thursday May 29,2008 at 6:30 pm. "Vexille" was released on DVD in the U.S. just this past Tuesday and all I have to say is "It's about time." I've been waiting to check this out since the first videos came out.

Visit www.us.embjapan.go.jp/jicc for more information. This event is free and open to the public. But be sure to send your RSVP to jiccrsvpspring08@embjapan.org.

Check out the synopsis below:
2067: Isolation - Japan seals herself off from the eyes of the world in the face of unilateral international policy setting strict limits on the use of robotic technology. The island nation exists only behind a veil of seclusion. No soul shall enter. No soul shall leave.

2077: Revelation - The veil is breached. Japan is infiltrated by agents of the organization S.W.O.R.D., a fighting force operating outside of the protection of the United States and her allies. Their mission: Determine if the Japanese are developing banned robotic bio-technology, forbidden due to its threat to humankind.

In the battle between machine and man, humanity stands to suffer most.
