Comic Fiesta 2011 Special Screening: Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo (Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below)
Comic Fiesta has always been more than just cosplay, comic books and goodies. It’s about celebrating the creativity within all of us. This year, Comic Fiesta's giving you a good reason to stay back after the end of day 1 of CF 2011.
Makoto Shinkai, hailed as “The New Miyazaki” and the director of critically-acclaimed animated features Hoshi no Koe and 5 Centimeters per Second, will be showing something special in CF 2011. This year, Comic Fiesta will be presenting the Southeast Asian premiere of his latest epic masterpiece: Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo (Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below)!
Described by Shinkai himself as “his longest animation film to date”, Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo is a gorgeously animated, action-packed tale of adventure, friendship and romance. Comic Fiesta 2011 will be the FIRST screening of Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo in Southeast Asia!
This film tells the story of a young girl named Asuna who spends her days listening to a mysterious music coming from a crystal radio left by her late father. One day, she is attacked by a monster and subsequently saved by a boy named Shun. But Shun mysteriously disappears and it’s up to Asuka to find out just what is going on.
The doors will open on the night of December 17, 2011 with a super-special screening of Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo for ALL Comic Fiesta 2011 attendees. But wait, there’s more! You’ll also have a chance to get your hands on exclusive posters and folders autographed by Makoto Shinkai himself!
