Directed by Satoshi Kon (Japan, 1998, 81 min.). Japanese with English subtitles.

In this breathtaking and rarely screened first film from legendary director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Paranoia Agent), Mima is a pop star who quits singing to take a recurring role on a popular TV show. Suddenly her collaborators begin turning up murdered. Harboring feelings of guilt and haunted by visions of her former self, Mima’s reality and fantasy meld into a frenzied paranoia. As her stalker closes in, in person and online, the threat he poses is more real than even Mima knows.

This iconic psychological thriller that has been hailed as one of the most important animated films of all time.
