The Chasing World will screen tomorrow night, Wednesday, October 8th as part of the New York - Tokyo Film Grand Prix 2008 Festival. Shibata's film, for which he also wrote the screenplay, is based on writer Yusuke Yamada best selling novel Riaru onigokko/Tag for Real. Both book and film tell the action-packed story of a surreal game of tag. While the novel was set in 3000 A.D., director Shibata has chosen to utilize the concept of a parallel universe.
