VIZ Media Europe is thrilled to announce that A Silent Voice animated movie has been selected in the official competition at the Annecy international Animation Film Festival.

VIZ Media Europe, the European leader in managing rights for Japanese animated movies, is proud to announce that the animated movie A Silent Voice has been selected in the official competition at the Annecy international Animation Film Festival (June 12 to 17).

Adapted from the eponymous manga series created by Yoshitoki Oima, A Silent Voice is a powerful and captivating full-length feature film that finely encompasses sensitive topics such as school bullying and disability.

Shoya Ishida is a reckless young boy whose daily life is centered around school and his friends. Bored, he spends his free time defying his comrades with increasingly extravagant challenges. When deaf Shoko Nishimiya joins their school in the middle of the year, some changes happen in the class’ day-today habits. From polite interest to exasperation caused by communication problems, Shoya grabs the opportunity to level up: mockery, bullying, persecution… all this under the indifferent gaze of the teachers. But everythings changes dramatically when Shoko finally gives in and leaves school while Shoya is summoned to the principal’s office. Considered as responsible by everyone, he is singled out and given the same treatment. A couple of years later, Shoya, stricken by remorse, starts looking for Shoko to apologize for his behaviour.
