Eleven Arts to Release Maquia: When The Promised Flower Blooms in Canada

Eleven Arts Anime Studio has licensed the Canadian distribution rights to Maquia – When the Promised Flower Blooms, from Mari Okada.

A renowned screenwriter, Maquia marks the directorial debut for Okada, diving into the dilemmas of motherhood, adolescence, femininity, and leadership. Okada wraps all these poignant themes into a sweeping epic with well-developed characters, emotional gravitas, stunning visuals, and an exhilarating score by composer Kenji Kawai. The film premieres in Canada as an official competitor at the 2018 Fantasia Film Festival.

Eleven Arts will release the film in Canadian Cineplex theaters on the same date as the United States: July 20, 2018. Maquia – When the Promised Flower Blooms will be presented with the original Japanese dialogue and English subtitles.
