Double Feature!
REDLINE / GHOST IN THE SHELL
10th Anniversary!

REDLINE
2009, Lionsgate, 102 min, Japan, Dir: Takeshi Koike

Takeshi Koike’s feature debut is a sensory assault that plays out like DEATH RACE 2000 on crack. Speed demon JP (Takuya Kimura) is determined to win the Redline, a violent intergalactic drag race set to take place on a planet run by warlike cyborgs. “The most insanely exciting, visually exhilarating anime film you've seen in decades.” - Tim Maughan, Anime News Network. In Japanese with English subtitles.


GHOST IN THE SHELL
KOKAKU KIDOTAI
1995, Lionsgate, 82 min, Japan, Dir: Mamoru Oshii

Director Mamoru Oshii’s anime masterpiece anticipates many of the themes from THE MATRIX. In the near future, a sentient computer program named Project 2501 tries to control the cyber and human worlds; standing in its way is kick-ass, super-sexy cyborg cop Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team at Section 9. In Japanese with English subtitles.


Screening format: blu-ray.
