The time has come for us to announce what we’re going to be screening at O-week this year and what our lineup will be for the 2014 Semester 1 Screenings.
We’re proud to announce an ANUAGS first for 2014: MADMAN sponsored O-week screenings!
On Wednesday (12th February 2014) at 6pm in Manning Clark Theatre 3 we will be playing the classic Ghost in the Shell movie:
In the year 2029, the barriers of our world have been broken down by the net and by cybernetics, but this brings new vulnerability to humans in the form of brain-hacking. When a highly-wanted hacker known as ‘The Puppetmaster’ begins involving them in politics, Section 9, a group of cybernetically enhanced cops, are called in to investigate and stop the Puppetmaster. The pursuit will call into question what makes a human and what is the Puppetmaster in a world where the distinction between human and machine is increasingly blurry. (Synopsis from myanimelist.net)
This will then be followed on the Friday (14th February 2014) at 5pm in Manning Clarke Lecture Theatre 3 with the more recent hit movie The Girl Who Leapt Through Time:
The power to travel through time… It can be used for the good of humanity, or just selfishly abused. While many may fantasize about obtaining such a power, it has become nothing less than reality for otherwise-normal schoolgirl Konno Makoto. After a fated event, her life takes a turn for the extraordinary. Though she initially uses her power to literally “leap” into the past and change little things in order to make her life easier, she soon has to face the fact that changing the past can have drastic consequences. (Synopsis from myanimelist.net)
