an image from Fly Me to Saitama


From Fri. Aug. 21@ 9am to Sun. Aug. 23 @ 9pm

From the director of Thermae Romae and Color Me True comes a wild comic fantasy based on Mineo May’s popular manga.

In a luxurious, kingdom-like Tokyo lives Momomi, the son of the corrupt governor and the possessor of striking feminine beauty. He, like all Tokyoites, looks down on the unsophisticated neighboring prefectures, especially Saitama. When mysterious student Rei transfers into the private academy, the spark of attraction soon lights the fuse for a war between the prefectures. A lunatic satire of the universal tensions between urban and rural; overflowing with energy, hilarity, and over-the-top action.
