Winner of the Grand Prize at the prestigious Annecy Animation Festival and an official selection of Sundance 2018, Lu Over the Wall is a toe-tapping, feel-good demonstration of anime auteur Masaaki Yuasa’s (Mind GameThe Night is Short, Walk on Girl, and Devilman Crybaby) genre-mixing mastery that will leave you humming long after you leave the theater. Kai is a talented but adrift musician who joins his classmates’ middle-school rock band as keyboardist. Their practice sessions bring an unexpected guest: Lu, a young mermaid whose fins turn to feet when she hears the beats, and whose singing causes humans to compulsively dance – whether they want to or not. While Kai forms a bond with Lu, ancient beliefs in the village sow distrust between the residents and the mermaid – whom they believe is a sign of impending doom.

Please note that while we are using an English-language trailer, the film will be shown in the original Japanese with English subtitles.
