ANIMATION FOR ADULTS
Satoshi Kon Double Feature!
PAPRIKA / TOKYO GODFATHERS
PAPRIKA
PAPURIKA
2006, Sony Pictures Classics, 90 min, Japan, Dir: Satoshi Kon

The final film from animator Satoshi Kon offers a mash-up of fantasy and waking life that would be echoed in Christopher Nolan’s INCEPTION a few years later. In the near future, an experimental device called the DC Mini allows people to view others’ dreams. A promising tool for psychotherapy, Dr. Chiba uses it on her patients, adopting the alter-ego “Paprika” to enter their nocturnal reveries. But when the DC Mini is stolen by those who would abuse its power, dream worlds begin to impinge on reality, and only Paprika can bring an end to the chaos. Named one of the 25 All-Time Best Animated Films by Time magazine, PAPRIKA’s hallucinatory logic and dazzling visuals are mesmerizing. In Japanese with English subtitles.


TOKYO GODFATHERS
2003, Sony Repertory, 93 min, Japan, Dir: Satoshi Kon, Shôgo Furuya

Written and directed by the late Satoshi Kon, this award-winning anime follows the story of three homeless people in Tokyo who find an abandoned newborn in the trash on Christmas Eve. As they care for the baby and try to find its parents, the outcasts (a transvestite, a teenage runaway and an alcoholic gambler) reveal insights into their own lives and circumstances. Loosely based on John Ford's 1948 film 3 GODFATHERS. In Japanese with English subtitles.
