The 16th edition of MONSTRA will kick start this year’s Feature Film Competition today. “The Anthem of the Heart”, directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai, will open the competition. This film tells the story of young Jun Naruse. After her family broke up because of her unconscious words, a mysterious “fairy egg” appeared, and he assured her that the only way to never hurt anyone again was to silence her voice forever.

The programming of this competition includes other projects such as “Window Horses – The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Wing” and “Louise by the Shore”, among others. The film “My Life as a Zucchini” directed by Claude Barras and nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, is also included in this year’s selection. You can confer the complete list of feature films in our program.

You can watch the inauguration of one more Feature Films Competition of MONSTRA today, at 10 pm, at Cinema São Jorge.
