The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl

Opens Aug 27, 2018

August 27 - 29!

From the visionary mind of director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Adventure Time’s “Food Chain”) comes The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl, an animated comedy about one epic night in Kyoto. As a group of teens go out for a night on the town, a sophomore known only as “The Girl with Black Hair” experiences a series of surreal encounters with the local nightlife…all the while unaware of the romantic longings a fellow student who has been creating increasingly fantastic and contrived reasons to run into her in an effort to win her heart.

"The whole thing is a postmodern trip, with animation styles varying greatly to fit the mood: bright pop art colours, dark Rembrandt tones and everything in between." (Richard James Havis, South China Morning Post)

"A restless mixture of inventive animation and over-elaborate storytelling set over a single long night in Kyoto." (Allan Hunter, Daily Express)

"It is romantic and hallucinogenic, with an edge of softcore erotic sleaze." (Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
