Based on the novel Perfect Blue: Complete Metamorphosis by Yoshikazu Takeuchi, the movie follows Miriam Kirigoe, a pop singer who retires from music trying to start an acting career. She becomes a victim of stalking, and then she starts to lose the limitis between reallity and fiction.
This screening is part of the Tribute to the great Satoshi Kon: Japanese animator, screenwriter, manga artist, and film director. His films have a realistic tone and at the same time complex stories that mix reality and dreams, real events with fantasy.
In addition to the four famous feature films he directed, he created mangas, directed episodes of animated television series and wrote scripts and collaborated with other artists. Despite his sudden death in 2010, he is considered one of the great exponents of contemporary anime.
During this edition of El Festival, the four emblematic feature films he directed will be screened: Perfect Blue (1997), Millennium Actress (2001), Tokyo Godfathers (2003) and Paprika (2006).
