I've never been to the Barbican in London, but by all accounts it's a friend to animated cinema. The Independent reports that on January 30, February 20 and March 27 there will be three showings of anime hosted and curated by Helen McCarthy, in which she will illustrate how contemporary anime relates with world cinema. The three screenings will feature Perfect Blue, My Neighbor Totoro and part of Samurai 7. The Independent article makes a little gaffe in that it says that modern Disney influenced Totoro (the author misses the fact that her example of Lilo and Stitch came fourteen years after Totoro), but that shouldn't ruin your enjoyment of the films.
