Marking the incredible directorial feature debut of the late prolific animator Satoshi Kon, Perfect Blue is a dark take on the price of fame that spirals into the surreal.
Mima, a young pop idol, is in the prime of her career. Ready to seize her moment in the spotlight, she decides to cross over into acting, but her role is not as clean cut as she originally imagined. When a diary detailing every aspect of her life appears online, Mima begins losing her grip on reality, trapped in a web of paranoia and confusion.Screening as part of the inaugural Birmingham Anime Film Festival.
