Event: Naoko Yamada to attend Q&A at Glasgow screening of A Silent Voice

Naoko Yamada, director of A Silent Voice, will be making a rare trip out of Japan to attend a screening of her film in Glasgow. The screening will take place on February 23rd at the Glasgow Film Theatre, as part of the Glasgow Film Festival running from February 15th – 26th.

Yamada, who’s also celebrated for her directorial debut K-ON!, will be taking part in a Q&A session following the film. As the guest of Anime Limited, she will be hosted by renowned anime expert Jonathan Clements, author of Anime: A History and The Anime Encyclopedia. Tickets for the film and Q&A session are now available for purchase here.

Anime Limited describe the film as follows:

Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as the teasing continues, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion. When they leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other again… until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. He wants to atone for his sins, but is it already too late…?
