“Mazinger Z Infinity” to world premiere at the 12th Rome Film Fest
Mazinger Z Infinity by Junji Shimizu will world premiere on October 28th at the 12th Rome Film Fest (October 26 – November 5, 2017). The announcement was made today by artistic director Antonio Monda, with the president of the Fondazione Cinema per Roma, Piera Detassis. Mazinger Z Infinity will screen at the Rome Film Fest in collaboration with the parallel and independent sidebar Alice nella città.
The highly-anticipated film will be presented by the world-wide famous mangaka Gō Nagai, the Japanese author who forty-five years ago – in 1972 – invented Mazinger Z, the first Japanese anime to feature a robot controlled by a human. The Futuristic appeal and the values of peace and justice he fights for turned Mazinger Z into a planetary phenomenon, a timeless hero and one of the most beloved of all time.
Mazinger Z Infinity brings the legendary main character Koji Kabuto and his arch-enemy Dr. Hell to the big screen for an exciting new adventure. The film is produced by Japanese animation studio Toei Animation.
