CAF: Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival presents: On-Gaku + Q&A (12A)

When you’re a bored teenager looking for thrills sometimes the only thing you can turn to is rock ’n’ roll. Having no skill, money, or even a full set of drums, a trio of high school delinquents nevertheless decide they are destined for musical glory in a quest to impress their only friend Aya, avoid a rival gang, and (most importantly) jam. With innovative, hand-drawn animation and a performance from a Japanese rock legend, this is a film with a deadpan humour that brings its own sound and vision to the Hiroyuki Ohashi manga.

The film will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with the director, hosted by Nia Alavezos.

PLEASE NOTE the screening on Friday 8 April is Carry On Screaming, open to Parents & Babies only. Every Friday morning, Carry on Screaming allows parents or carers with a child under one to see a film at Chapter without having to worry about their baby causing a disturbance. Free entry for babies. Carry On Screaming screenings are for parents with babies under twelve months only, with adjustments to the cinema environment to make it as convenient and comfortable as possible for both. No baby – no entry.
