Millennium Actress

Presented by Fathom Events at AMC DINE-IN Vestavia Hills 10

In Birmingham, the event will be broadcast at the Vestavia Hills 10, Patton Creek 15 and Trussville Stadium 16 theaters.

Experience the gorgeous new restoration of what many believe to be Satoshi Kon’s (Perfect Blue, Paprika) greatest work, MILLENNIUM ACTRESS.

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 she 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. Boasting countless awards, including the Grand Prize in the Japan Agency of Cultural Affairs Media Arts Festival, which it shared with Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, MILLENNIUM ACTRESS is a must-see for anime fans of all ages.

After the film, stick around for a conversation with Millennium Actress producers, Taro Maki and Masao Maruyama as they reflect on making the film and Satoshi Kon’s legacy.
