Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence


In theatres September 17!

Ghost in the Shell (1995), based on the Japanese manga, is set in the 21st century and focuses on Major Motoko Kusanagi - a cyborg with a human brain in a mechanical body - who works for a covert operations unit that fights cyber-crime. In these animes, the unit is searching for The Puppet Master, who turns out to be an artificial intelligence. The relationships of Ghost in the Shell to cyberpunk fiction and film such as Neuromancer and The Matrix deserve closer examination.
