Anime Night at Tegeler: Maquia - When the Promised Flower Blooms

Friday, 05 April, 2019

This event is a movie screening of the animated film “Maquia: When the Promised Flower Bloms” on April 5th in Tegeler Auditorium at 6:00 pm. Free food will be served.

The movie that we are planning to show, Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms, is about an immortal girl from a village of immortal people whose life is suddenly torn apart when an outside kingdom invades and destroys her home. Upon her escape, she adopts a regular human boy and raises him as her own, and the film explores her raising a mortal son as an immortal mother while migrating throughout the kingdom. The movie's main theme is moving forward in a world that is unfamiliar and sometimes hostile, with a focus on how bonds and experiences can give a person the strength to keep going.
