From the mind of Makoto Ueda and Europe-Kikaku, the creators of ‘Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes’ comes Summer Time Machine Blues, a delightful teenage time-travel comedy from 2005 and a cult favourite in Japan. To members of the university Sci-Fi Club, summer means hanging around in the clubhouse with the air-con blasting. When the air-con remote is accidentally broken, the friends are forced to face the full heat of summer. The next day, after an encounter with a mysterious student, they discover an incredible new addition to their clubhouse: a working time machine. Now they can go back to before the remote broke and cool down again. If only time travel was that simple…
This is the first physical release of the film outside of Japan and will be available July 4th 2022.
