Satoshi Kon’s acclaimed anime is screening in its 20th anniversary year. Leaving the world of J-pop behind her, Mima Kirigoe begins life as an actress on a crime drama show called Double Blind. When offered a lead role in the show as a rape victim, Mima accepts the role. However, the backlash from fans over her career change and a strange website called ‘Mima’s Room’ written by a fake Mima begin to worry her. When a stalker appears and people involved in Double Blind begin turning up dead with all the evidence pointing to her, Mima is thrown into a state of confusion, madness and paranoia.

The screening on 5th November is also part of Animation Sunday and a pass for the event is available for £27 / £22 or for FREE with a LIFF 2017 Pass or see 6 films for the price of 5 (available by phone or in person only) - details here.
