Kazuhisa Takenouchi and Leiji Matsumoto, Interstella 5555, 2003

Take Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (Daft Punk) add their childhood hero, 65-year-old Japanese animation legend Leiji Matsumoto, and the result is this hugely entertaining manga house rock opera, or as they put it, “An animated musical, mixing science fiction with the decadent world of show business, limousines and spaceships”.

Screenings took place at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle on Sat 8 - Tue 11 November and Thu 13 November, and at Kino, Middlesbrough on Wed 12 November.
