This screening has sold out. There are no more tickets available.

The year is 2029. A female government cyber agent and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of “The Puppet Master”—a computer virus capable of invading cybernetic brains and altering its victim’s memory. Created by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and codenamed “Project 2501,” this ‘hacker’ is actually a prototype virtual agent which has now defied its makers by seeking asylum within a new host body outside of the electronic net. Now the two agencies must maneuver against each another in a violent, high-tech race to capture the omnipresent entity. In Japanese with English subtitles. Recommended for children ages 16 and older. The original version of the film will be screened, not the 2.0 version. (2K DCP Presentation)
