- GKIDS TO THEATRICALLY RE-RELEASE “TOKYO GODFATHERS” IN NEW YORK CITY & LOS ANGELES ON MARCH 13
- FEATURING AN ALL NEW RESTORATION AND ENGLISH-LANGUAGE DUB
- FATHOM EVENTS PREVIEW SCREENINGS ARE MARCH 9 & MARCH 11
On Friday, March 13, GKIDS presents a brand new restoration of visionary director Satoshi Kon’s critically-acclaimed animated feature, TOKYO GODFATHERS, at the Metrograph Theater in New York and the Lumiere Music Hall in Los Angeles. This theatrical re-release showcases a new English-language dub produced by GKIDS and NYAV Post with the voices of Jon Avner (Just Cause 3), Victoria Grace (Mirai), and Shakina Nayfack (“Transparent,” “Difficult People”).
In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people’s lives are changed forever when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue, Paprika), written by Kon and Keiko Nobumoto (Cowboy Bebop) and featuring a whimsical score by Keiichi Suzuki, TOKYO GODFATHERS is a masterpiece by turns heartfelt, hilarious and highly original, a tale of hope and redemption in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
GKIDS and Fathom Events also presents special fan screenings of TOKYO GODFATHERS on March 9 and March 11. The March 9 screenings will be subtitled, while the March 11 screenings will feature the new English-language dub. All fan preview screenings of TOKYO GODFATHERS will screen at 7:00 p.m. local time.
