Anime's Early Days (1924-1952)

(Sorry to most of you if my posts are about local events lately.)
This new showcase at the Cinémathèque québécoise seems really interesting.
Anime's Early Days (1924-1952)
In world premiere, the Cinémathèque québécoise is showing a retrospective of the early days of japanese animation. 53 archive movies, many cleaned up and restored, with the collaboration of the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art.
The showcases are divided by periods, like during WWII, propaganda and during the occupation.
Check here for the schedule. There's also a few previews here.
I especialy want to see the propaganda ones. Like Momotaro and the Sea Eagles, about like cute animals bombing Pearl Harbor. X-D Old propaganda is always very hard to find because it's so politicaly incorrect.
