MAQUIA: WHEN THE PROMISED FLOWER BLOOMS
In UK Cinemas Wednesday 27th June
Mari Okada’s (Fate/stay night,(Script)) directorial début is a profound human drama and stunning record of an emotional adventure.
The people of Iolph are known for two things: their youthful longevity and peaceful lives weaving tapestry. When that is disturbed and their home thrown into chaos by those believing that their blood gifts longer life, Maquia loses not only her friends, but a place to return to. Lost in both mind and body, she stumbles into a dark forest and happens upon Aliel, an orphaned baby boy. Together, the two embark on an emotional journey of the bond between the ageless and the mortal.
