Ghost in the Shell
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Japanese animation, the JICC is presenting a retrospective of landmark animated films!
"A work of profound and melancholic beauty..."
Daily Telegraph UK
"A stunning work of speculative fiction..."
James Cameron, director of Titanic
The stunning sci-fi spectacle that broke the boundaries of mainstream animation!
In 2029, a female government cyber agent, Makoto Kusanagi, and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of The Puppet Master - a computer virus capable of invading cybernetic brains and altering its victim's memory. Created by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and codenamed Project 2501, this "hacker" is actually a prototype virtual agent which has now defied its makers by seeking asylum within a new host body outside of the electronic net. Now the two agencies must maneuver against each another to capture the omnipresent entity.
In Japanese with English subtitles | Not Rated | 1995 | 83 min | Directed by Mamoru Oshii
