16:30 Doors 17:00 Redline (2009)

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

What contains more car violence than eleven Fast & Furious films combined? Yes, the anime Redline! Directed by Takeshi Koike, this car racing anime is an adrenaline rush. We follow the story of JP, a rebellious racer who competes in the galaxy's deadliest and most illegal race, the Redline. Redline fits within the booming sports anime market, a subgenre that is very successful in Japan. But the film also draws inspiration from the games world and is therefore part Formula 1 and part Carmageddon, with a touch of Wacky Races. Director Takeshi Koike's signature style relies heavily on Western comics, which combined with anime creates a unique visual look. A must-watch for fans of fast-paced action and innovative visual storytelling in anime.

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.
