Saturday Matinee: Short Peace


“Short Peace” (2013) is an anthology of diverse anime short films each from a different director including Hajime Katoki (Patlabor) and Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira). Possessions is an animist ghost story in which a lone traveler struggles against spirits haunting an abandoned shrine. Combustable tells a story of love and honor using the style of a classic Japanese scroll painting. Gambo depicts a fight between a giant white bear diety and a grotesque red demon from outer space. A Farewell to Weapons takes place in a post-apocalyptic city where a nomadic platoon encounters a renegade robotic death machine. Based on a manga of the same name by Katsuhiro Otomo.
