Synopsis

The director of the famous anime, Akira, spent 10 years working on Steamboy, and when you see his painstaking recreation of the Victorian era, you'll understand why. Ray is a young inventor, living at the height of England's industrialisation, whose life is endangered when his grandfather sends him a powerful and mysterious contraption called the Steam Ball. Steamboy is an exciting adventure that also explores the purpose of scientific advance - should it serve humanity...or only science itself?

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
