European Premiere Of 009 RE:CYBORG At The BFI In April

The BFI website and Anime Limited's Facebook page have both revealed that the BFI will be hosting the European premiere of 009 RE:CYBORG on 4 April 2013.

Director Kenji Kamiyama and producer Tomohiko Ishiia will be on hand to take part in a Q&A session after the screening.

Here's the official film synopsis from Production IG:

1964: nine regular humans from different parts of the world are abducted and transformed into cyborgs with astounding powers for the purpose of being used as weapons.

The nine cyborgs rebel and start to fight against their creators in the name of justice. But as their struggle finally restored world peace, they eventually disappeared from the pages of history and from people's memory.

2013: skyscrapers across the world are hit by suicide bombers with no apparent connection. The nine heroes gather once again after 27 years to fight against this faceless menace.

They appear untouched by time, but society around them has changed dramatically, as it has the very idea of "justice": they used to believe in... What is their role in the world now?

Tickets for the screening go on sale on Tuesday 12 March 2013 at 11.30AM GMT and will be available from the BFI website.
