VAF Artist Presents: Akira

Event Details

VAF Artist 2021, Tor Fruergaard, presents his favourite film, the animation classic: “Akira”. This cult film, created by Japanese animator Katsuhiro Otomo, is a story about friendship, dystopia and motorcycle gangs.

“Akira” is nothing short of legendary! The movie broke all records in Japan in the late 1980’s, and despite its’ more than 30 years, it is still a technical triumph. “Akira” presents a post-apocalyptic Tokyo anno 2019, all covered in neon lights. In the streets motorcycle gangs, military and rebels are fighting for control. The movie follows the two friends Tetsuo and Kaneda, and their confrontations with not only generals and rival gangs, but also the supernatural. Tetsuo acquires telekinetic powers which makes him unstable, so much that he ends up fighting his friend Kaneda. Kaneda and his gang looks for Akira, the destroyer of Tokyo and the only one with the power to match Tetsuo.
