Japanese cinema is often hastily associated with animation films. But very few people realize how diverse this field really is. That is why, in its thirteenth year, NIPPON CONNECTION Film Festival starts a new programme: NIPPON ANIMATION. Here you will see the latest blockbusters (WOLF CHILDREN), the darkest nightmares (ASURA), make a journey through the history of anime (LIFE OF BUDORI GUSUKO) or delve into the abyss of absurdity (THE BURNING BUDDHA MAN). We are glad to present a programme that will show you things you have never seen before.
