Bringing Japan’s most influential animators together in one visionary anthology, Katsuhiro Otomo’s SHORT PEACE ushers in a new era in anime with four stunning short films. A lone traveler is confronted by unusual spirits in Shuhei Morita’s Oscar nominated POSSESSIONS (Tsukumo). A mysterious white bear defends the royal family from a red demon in GAMBO, directed by Hiroaki Ando and featuring character designs by Yohiyuki Sadamoto (NEON GENESIS EVANGELION). Hajime Katoki helms Otomo’s tour–de–force saga A FAREWELL TO ARMS (Buki yo Saraba), while grandmaster Otomo himself assumes the directorial reigns for a spectacular tale set in ancient Japan with the multi–award winning COMBUSTIBLE.
