In his feature filmmaking debut, renowned visual artist Takashi Murakami transforms the classic cinematic trope of the new kid on the block into an epic genre-defying adventure. Having recently lost his father, young Masashi moves with his mother to a small city in the Japanese countryside. But when he discovers that their new apartment is already inhabited by a pint-sized, gravity-defying creature, Masashi begins to pull back the curtain on this sleepy town and finds that very little is what it appears to be. Unraveling a conspiracy that involves everything from remote-controlled avatars to crazed rival cults, Masashi discovers that he and his classmates are at the center of a nefarious experiment. Not only an accomplished artist but also a connoisseur of Japanese popular culture, Murakami packs his film with a delirious abundance of ideas and imagery. What other coming-of-age fantasy has tween romance, a role-playing battle royale, nuclear intrigue, rival doppelgangers, and a giant monster? Join us for the North American premiere of Jellyfish Eyes and see for yourself.
