From visionary director Yasuhiro Yoshiura comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure about two kids separated by opposite gravities.

“The sky is quite literally the limit in this very strong, very clever anime set in an upside-down bizarro-world.” – Anton Bidel, Little White Lies

Patema is an orphan who lives in an underground world of tunnels, the long-abandoned ruins for a giant industrial complex. Though she is a princess, she is held back by the rules imposed by the elders of her clan.   One day when she is exploring in the forbidden zone, she is startled by a strange bat-like creature and tumbles headlong into a void – and out into the world above the surface, a place with reversed physics, where if she let go she would “fall up” into the sky and be lost forever. Age is a student on this surface world, and when he sees Patema hanging upside-down from a tree, he pulls her down to safety, struggling to keep her earthbound. Together, they master the art of navigating competing gravitational forces and set out to discover the secret that keeps their worlds apart. (Dir. by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, 2013, Japan, in English, 98 mins., Not Rated/ recommended for ages 8+)
