Movies like “Genius Party”

Seven short films from different directors. Atsuko Fukushima’s intro piece is a fantastic abstraction to soak up with the eyes. Masaaki Yuasa, of MIND GAME and CAT SOUP fame, brings his distinctive and deceptively simple graphic style and dream-state logic to the table with “Happy Machine,” his spin on a child’s earliest year. Shinji Kimura’s spookier “Deathtic 4,” meanwhile, seems to tap into the creepier corners of a child’s imagination and open up a toybox full of dark delights. Hideki Futamura’s “Limit Cycle” conjures up a vision of virtual reality, while Yuji Fukuyama’s “Doorbell” and “Baby Blue” by Shinichiro Watanabe use understated realism for very surreal purposes. And Shoji Kawamori, with “Shanghai Dragon,” takes the tropes and conventions of traditional anime out for very fun joyride.

Long ago, Arceus granted a fragment of its power as the Jewel of Life to help Michina in the town’s hour of need, only to be betrayed when it was time for that power to be returned. After so many years, Arceus is about to return to reclaim its stolen power- enraged, vengeful, and seemingly unstoppable. Not even the combined might of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina can stop Arceus from devastating all existence across the dimensions. But Ash and his companions, joining forces with their new friend Sheena, May have discovered the only way to redeem that ancient betrayal. Their journey will be both dangerous and uncertain: even if Ash and his friends can set an old wrong right again, will there be time to return the Jewel of Life before Arceus destroys everything and everyone they’ve ever known?
