Co-presented with GKIDS and Anime NYC. Japan Society proudly presents both the original Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence in honor of the 20th anniversary of Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence and its upcoming nationwide 4K theatrical release.

Mamoru Oshii’s groundbreaking cyberpunk classic conjures a startling vision of the future—a new age of global interconnectedness wherein neural pathways and information networks have become inextricably linked. Surveilling the sprawling technopolis of New Port City, Major Motoko Kusanagi, a cyborg officer specializing in cybercrime, hunts down a mysterious entity responsible for a series of “ghost-hackings” that have infiltrated human hosts. Known only as the Puppet Master, the newly-surfaced threat leads Major to uncover a vast conspiracy—prompting her to question her own humanity and purpose of existence.

Followed by a post-screening reception. 

Purchase tickets to both Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence to save up to 20% (excluding fees, where applicable) on both tickets.

Dir. Mamoru Oshii, 1995, 83 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English Subtitles. With Atsuko Tanaka, Akio Otsuka, Iemasa Kayumi.
