An Epic UK Tezuka Film Fest!

People of England, check this out! You lucky Brits are in for a real treat here. Barbican Film is marking the 80th anniversary of Osamu Tezuka's birthday with an incredible line up of films. All sorts of movies, shorts, TV episodes, and rare programming is on tap in what might just be the biggest and most comprehensive series of Tezuka screenings anywhere in the world. Some of the notable films include the colorized 60's animated movie Astro Boy: The Brave In Space, the 1997 movie version of Jungle Emperor Leo, the crazy crossover Marine Express, Phoenix 2772/Space Firebird, Unico, and more.

It happens from Thursday September 18th to Wednesday September 24th 2008, and if I lived anywhere close to London, England, I would be there every single day.
