Pigtails, Miss Hokusai, Ghost in the Shell, Innocence and 009 Re:Cyborg screening at Los Angeles Anime Film Festival 2017

August 21, 2017

Five films from Production I.G will be screening at the first edition of the Los Angeles Anime Film Festival (LA-AFF), to be held in Los Angeles from September 15 to 17, 2017.

The lineup includes Pigtails (by Yoshimi Itazu), Miss Hokusai (by Keiichi Hara), Ghost in the Shell (by Mamoru Oshii), Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (by Mamoru Oshii), and 009 Re:Cyborg (by Kenji Kamiyama).

Pigtails and Miss Hokusai will be screening as part of a double-feature program on September 17. The two films share the same staff in several key roles, such as scriptwiter (Miho Maruo), colour designer (Satoshi Hashimoto), director of photography (Koji Tanaka), the nearly once-off team of Ghibli and Satoshi Kon veteran key animators (Toshiyuki Inoue, Megumi Kagawa, Michiyo Suzuki, Kazuki Hoshino, Shingo Takenaka, Norio Matsumoto, Hiroko Minowa), and of course chief animator Yoshimi Itazu, who also made his directorial debut in Pigtails. Itazu is currently directing his first TV series, Welcome to the Ballroom. This screening is offering a rare opportunity to appreciate the same staff performing in two completely different styles.

2017 marks the 100th year since animation was born in Japan, and LA-AFF has committed to bring popular titles from recent years as well as timeless classics, selecting a lineup that represents the full range of artistic expression, profoundness, and diversity of Japanese animation. LA-AFF will be showing films loved by people of all ages in the mecca of entertainment, Los Angeles, providing a full audio and video experience on the big screen, or the environment these works were originally conceived for.
