About the Film:

Part of Japanese Cinema • 日本映画祭 + Satoshi Kon Tribute

Directed by Satoshi Kon. Japan. 2001. 87 min. Japanese with English subtitles.

Chiyoko Fujiwara was at the height of her acting career when she suddenly quit.  Decades later, a filmmaker meets the elderly woman to produce a documentary about her life. Together, they explore Chiyoko’s life—in the real world and on screen—and the lines between reality and cinema slowly becomes blurred. Kon defied animation convention with this surrealist pseudo-documentary.
