18:30 Doors 19:00 Introduction Tess Wiskerke 19:10 Angel's Egg (1985)

Together with Kaboom Animation Festival, we are bringing the best anime to the big screen!

In a surreal, deserted world, a girl walks aroundwith a large egg. That doesn't seem like a premise on which to base an entire animated feature film, but in Mamoru Oshii's Angel's Egg it succeeds very convincingly. Angel's Egg is an anime like no other. With virtually no dialogue, the film takes the viewer into a world characterized by its symbolism. Those who know Mamoru Oshii mainly from the very successful and violent film Ghost in the Shell, will see his affinity with philosophical themes in passion project Angel's Egg. As a unique anime film, Angel's Egg proves the power of the medium to push its boundaries and captivate the audience on a deep and intellectual level.

Melkweg often hosts different types of programmes at the same time, such as concerts, club nights and films. Please note that there may occasionally be some noise pollution from other programmes during the screening.
