New Japanimation Season at the Barbican with Helen McCarthy and, on October 30th, Jonathan Clements!

Hold on to your hats, film lovers of the UK, it's time once again for Japanimation, a thrilling season of events exploring the relationship between Japanese animation and Western cinema at the Barbican in London! The last season of events -- also hosted by Helen McCarthy, co-author of The Anime Encyclopedia, and also pairing a screening of a hot anime film with discussion of the film's influences -- was a huge success, and this new season, with one event every month (except for December) through March, is even bigger and better!

The first screening, Romeo X Juliet (inspired by...well, not by King Lear) on Tuesday, October 30th, 2007, will be introduced by Helen McCarthy and followed by discussion with Jonathan Clements & the President of GDH International!
