Directed by Satoshi Kon
A TV crew is granted a rare interview with a reclusive actress, leading them and the viewer through decades of cinema history. As she recounts the story of her life and career, the lines between fact and fiction start to blur. Directed by Satoshi Kon, who also made Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress is filled with references to Japanese cinema.
The screening will be introduced by Michael Leader and Jake Cunningham, co-hosts of the podcast Ghibliotheque and co-authors of The Ghibliotheque Anime Movie Guide, which charts a path through the wildly creative and influential anime industry with 30 standout feature films, from Akira to Your Name.
The screening will be followed by a short Q&A, and Jake and Michael will be selling and signing copies of the Ghibliotheque Anime Movie Guide and their previous book, Ghibliotheque: The Unofficial Guide to the Movies of Studio Ghibli, after the screening.
The Ghibliotheque Anime Movie Guide can be pre-ordered with your cinema ticket for £20.00.
