For those of you down New York way, June 27 to July 1, 2008, will see a mid-career retrospective of Satoshi Kon’s anime work.
All four of Kon’s animated feature films (Perfect Blue, Sennen Joyu, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprika) as well as sections of TV series Moso Dairinin (Paranoia Agent), will be screened at the Walter Reade Theater.

Kon will take part in an onstage conversation with the Lincoln Center’s Film Society program director Richard Peña, following the 6:15PM screening of Paprika on June 27, Friday.
Kon’s artwork will also be on display in the Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery, adjacent to the Walter Reade Theater lobby, from June 27 through July 15.

Needless to say, I am envious of all you Big Apple Kon die-hards…
You can go here for more details, and to purchase tickets online.

Parting shot: A review of Paprika can be found in the Archive.
