Your (Not) Alone
Special Advance Screening
Wednesday, September 9th 2009 at 6:30 pm
Only 15 years after the cataclysmic "Second Impact" destroyed half of the world's population, Earth is under attack again, this time by mysterious alien giants called Angels. All that remains of Japan is the besieged city of Tokyo 3, a mechanized metropolis capable of retracting into an underground cavern. There, in the headquarters of a secret government agency called NERV, a lonely 14-year-old boy named Shinji is recruited by his estranged father to pilot Evangelion Unit One, humanity's last hope of overcoming the destructive Angels. Shinji must choose between risking his life in battle or running away from his fear, his father, and himself.
Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone is the action-packed first chapter of a four-part adaptation of the immensely popular "Neon Genesis Evangelion" anime series, sure to thrill fans of the series and newcomers alike. Experience Evangelion at the JICC, where the film will be shown in the original Japanese with subtitles, before the English-dubbed version opens at Baltimore's Hoff Theater in for a special week-long engagement (September 11 -17th).
Japanese with English subtitles. 98 min, 2006. Directed by Hideaki Anno.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis. Reservations limited to two seats. Please send your name, affiliation, the number in your party and the names of your guests to email@example.com.
