Special Thanks to Shannon Meehan
Shout! Factory is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win their new Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack of MILLENNIUM ACTRESS (千年女優, Sennen Joyū, 2001). This release features a gorgeous new restoration of the captivating anime feature from legendary director Satoshi Kon (PERFECT BLUE, PAPRIKA, TOKYO GODFATHERS) and famed anime studio Madhouse (PERFECT BLUE, WOLF CHILDREN, DEATH NOTE), with the original Japanese audio and a new English dub.
When the legendary Ginei Studios shuts down, filmmaker Genya Tachibana and his assistant are tasked with interviewing its reclusive star, Chiyoko Fujiwara, who had retired from the spotlight 30 years prior. As Chiyoko recounts her career, Genya and his crew are literally pulled into her memories where they witness her chance encounter with a mysterious man on the run from the police. Despite never knowing his name or his face, Chiyoko relentlessly pursues that man in a seamless blend of reality and memory that only Satoshi Kon could deliver.
The MILLENNIUM ACTRESS Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack (SRP $26.99) will be available from retailers next Tuesday, December 10.
