The final opus of the experimental pop master Nobuhiko Ôbayashi, Labyrinth of Cinema is a powerful denunciation of war and a testament to the power of art as activism.

During a marathon screening of old war films, a group of young protagonists are transported into the onscreen action. Witnessing transformative moments in Japanese history and film, they seek to alter events on the eve of the atomic bomb detonating over Hiroshima. Splendid visual effects and an exuberant use of colour merge with surrealist storytelling to create this visual feast with a strong moral compass.
