Steamboy Animezing

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

An epic sci-fi adventure nearly a decade in the making, Steamboy marked the ambitious return of Katsuhiro Otomo, director of the groundbreaking animated feature Akira.

Set in Victorian England against a visually striking fusion of past and future, Steamboy introduces us to the Steams: three generations of inventors perched on the precipice of a technological breakthrough. When the youngest of them, a gadget-happy boy named Ray, receives a mysterious metal ball capable of harnessing enough energy to power an entire nation, he soon finds himself at the center of an international war. In the wrong hands, the device could become a devastating weapon. Will Ray find the courage to use it to save his family and his home from destruction?
