Tekkonkinkreet



From the animation studio, Studio 4°C, who brought you The Animatrix comes this visually stunning new anime film based on the popular Japanese manga written by Taiyo Matsumoto. Directed by Michael Arias, the anime takes place in Treasure Town, where life can be both gentle and brutal. This is never truer than for our heroes, Kuro(Black) and Shiro(White), two street urchins who watched over the city, doing battle with an array of old-world Yakuza and alien assassins vying to rule the decaying metropolis.

Tekkonkinkreet won the prestigious Best Film Award at the 2006 Mainichi Film Awards. It was also named the Number 1 film of 2006 in the annual "Best of" roundup by the New York Museum of Modern Art's Artforum magazine.
