Metro Bizarro is very proud to present the Edmonton premiere of a new 2k digital restoration of Belladonna of Sadness . Belladonna is the third and final installment of Mushi Production and Osamu Tezuka's Animerama trilogy. Inspired by Jules Michelet's text La Sorcière, Belladonna was the first animated pinku film and is heavily influenced by the artworks of Klimt, Beardsley, and tarot cards. Jean and Jeanne are in love, to be wed, and happy. When Jeanne falls victim to droit du seigneur she begins an ascent to power through any means necessary, even at the risk of her soul. A masterwork of animation with a beautiful jazz score by Masahiko Satoh.


This screening is part of the larger thematic series:
