“Tokyo Godfathers” Playing October 30

October 24th, 2004 – Announcements, Events

CJAS will be showing Satoshi Kon’s most recent movie, Tokyo Godfathers, this coming Saturday, October 30. Kon is the acclaimed director of award-winning films Perfect Blue and Millennium Actress. The movie will be shown during the last half of Saturday’s meeting, at 10:25 pm.

Description: It’s Christmas Eve in Tokyo. Three homeless people – alcoholic Gin, drag queen Hana, and teenage runaway Miyuki – discover an abandoned baby in a pile of garbage. Rather than turn the infant over to the police, the trio decide instead to find the baby’s parents themselves. Following the only clue they have, a locker key, the three godfathers embark on a surprising journey of danger, humor and excitement. And in the process, they revisit their own haunted pasts and learn to face their future.
