Fantastic Fest 2015 to Show the Belladonna of Sadness Anime Film

The 2015 Fantastic Fest film festival has announced its second wave of film screenings. Eiichi Yamamoto’s 1973 experimental anime film Belladonna of Sadness was included in that announcement.

Cinelicious Pics restored Belladonna of Sadness in 4K resolution from its original 35mm negative, with plans to release the film in theaters, home video, and on demand in 2015. The film has not been widely released in the United States before, although it was screened in Los Angeles in 2009 and at Montreal’s Fantasia Fest in 2013. The Japan Cuts film festival also screened the film on July 10, 2015.

Osamu Tezuka produced the film, which was written and directed by his long-time creative partner Eiichi Yamamoto at Mushi Productions. Masahiko Satoh composed the film’s soundtrack.

The Fantastic Fest film festival will be taking place in the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas from September 24-October 1, 2015.
