First show: February 29
Directors Bong Joon-ho (PARASITE), Michel Gondry (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) and Leos Carax (HOLY MOTORS) each direct a segment of TOKYO! — a supernatural triptych about life in Tokyo.
Interior Design (Michel Gondry)
A young couple tries to set themselves up in Tokyo. The young man’s ambition is clear — to become a film director. His girlfriend, far more indecisive, cannot escape the vague feeling that she’s losing control of her life. Directionless, both are beginning to go under in this vast city until the young woman, utterly alone, becomes the object of a bizarre transformation…
Merde (Leos Carax)
A mysterious creature spreads panic in the streets of Tokyo by means of his provocative and destructive behavior. This man, dubbed “The Creature of the Sewers” by the media, arouses both passion and repulsion…until the moment he is captured…
Shaking Tokyo (Bong Joon-ho)
For more than 10 years, he’s been a hikikomori. He lives shut up in his apartment, strictly limiting all contact with the outside world to an absolute minimum. When a pizza delivery girl faints in his home during an earthquake, the unthinkable happens — he falls in love. Shortly after, he learns that the girl has in turn become a hikikomori. Will he dare cross the threshold that separates his apartment from the rest of the world?
Directed by Michel Gondry, Leos Carax, and Bong Joon-Ho. 112 minutes. 2008. DCP.
