Based on his own apocalyptic sci-fi comic strip of epic length and success, Katsuhiro Otomo's AKIRA is set in a devastated Tokyo that is slowly being rebuilt 30 years after nuclear destruction.
The inner city remains chaotic and dangerous, the scene of perpetual war between pill-popping motorbike gangs, of riots by the hungry and dispossessed. Ruled by a repressive military government, the masses are swayed by religious fanatics who predict the second coming of the legendary Akira.
But the cult is challenged by Tetsuo, a young biker who is losing control of his recently discovered telekinetic powers - powers which threaten the end of the world.
A portion of the profits from this screening will be donated to The Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund.
