Ten years after his untimely passing, this moving documentary honours the life and work of Satoshi Kon (1963–2010). The highly revered animator and director leaves behind an impressive body of work, and his legacy remains a major cultural influence on the animation world today. Fans of Kon will know him for his unmatched ability to adapt complex sci-fi stories into brilliant works, from the jarring thriller Perfect Blue (1997) to the reality-bending Paprika (2006). Venerated by his peers, Kon is remembered as an innovator and provocateur, whose demands for perfection and high-concept storytelling resulted in works that were ahead of their time. Having left this world too soon, his last film Dreaming Machine remains unfinished, and instead we are gifted with precious morsels of his work.
