Japan Society NY's new Monthly Anime series begins on Friday, April 15 at 7:00 pm with a screening of Mamoru Oshii's cyberpunk hit Ghost in the Shell. The series will explore the widely influential legacy of anime through in-person screenings of classic, underseen and contemporary visions from Japanese animation.

Mamoru Oshii’s groundbreaking 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. 

Note that while the movie screens at 7:00 pm, there will be a pre-screening party at 6:00 pm with Japanese foods and snacks provided by Kikkoman. The first 10 people who take photos in costume with our supporter banner and tag Japan Society on social media will receive a dual membership to Japan Society.

For the health and safety of Japan Society staff and visitors, all audience members are asked to:

- Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times. Masks with vents/bandanas are not permitted. Respirator-style masks (N95, KN95, KF94, etc.) are encouraged.

- Bring proof of vaccination and photo ID with you. As of February 1, proof of a booster shot is required for anyone who is eligible, with a 4-week grace period after eligibility.
