Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

9:30pm - Monday, May 20, 2024

This final movie version was created as an alternative ending to the NEON GENESIS EVANGELION TV series, remaking the final two episodes from the series. SEELE plans an attack on NERV after failing to create a man-made Third Impact. After reaffirming both her own and her mother’s existence in a state of despair, Asuka returns and begins the counterattack. However, new enemies descend from the heavens. Meanwhile, Shinji witnesses the horrifying wreckage of Asuka’s EVA-02 while piloting EVA-01. Mass production models surround EVA-01 and perform a solemn ceremony. What does it mean to complete a human heart?

"Simply incredible to look at, with bold splashes of colour in every frame, with nuanced movements from the humans and humanoid robots alike, with weight and detail in both its action and its quieter moments of drama." (Little White Lies)

"Perhaps one of the most nihilistic, avant-garde and devastating endings to an anime series ever conceived… It is the best and worst of everything that is 'Evangelion' combined to create a film that is unlike anything that had come before it." (Paste Magazine)

"Twenty years after its original release, The End of Evangelion remains one of the few films that covered depression well and, perhaps, is the strongest example in film." (Cultured Vultures)
