Postponed: TOKYO GODFATHERS
First show: March 13
As of March 11, in addition to increased sanitation throughout our facilities and other precautions we are taking, we are also reducing seating capacity in each of our theaters to a number that will allow for what is presently considered sufficient space for social distancing.
We are evaluating the situation as it evolves on a daily basis and will continue to follow the guidance of government agencies. We understand that circumstances will likely remain fluid in the coming days and weeks. We will adapt accordingly and update you with any changes to our programs.
“A story that will never, ever, be remade by Disney.” – Roger Ebert
Tokyo Godfathers, the acclaimed holiday classic from master director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Perfect Blue), returns in a brand-new restoration!
In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people’s lives are changed forever when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.
Co-written by Keiko Nobumoto (Cowboy Bebop) and featuring a whimsical score by Keiichi Suzuki, Tokyo Godfathers is a masterpiece by turns heartfelt, hilarious and highly original, a tale of hope and redemption in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
Directed by Satoshi Kon, 2003. 92 mins. DCP. In Japanese with English subtitles.
