Anime movie to be screened at DeKalb Public Library

DeKALB – Anime and manga fans are invited to the DeKalb Public Library for a screening of "Patema Inverted" at 2 p.m. Saturday.

A girl named Patema is part of a society that lives underground in a vast network of tunnels. She enters an area known as the forbidden zone, and accidentally falls – upward. On the surface of the Earth, she starts to fall up toward the sky until she is saved by a boy called Age. His society has taught him that Patema’s clan are sinners who will be swallowed by the sky. Together, the two work to unravel the secrets of both of their worlds, and how they fit into it.

This free movie is rated PG-13 for intense themes. Patrons younger than 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

The program will be in the lower-level Zimmerman Meeting Room.
