Satoshi Kon : l'illusionniste

Satoshi Kon revolutionised animation with masterpieces such as Perfect Blue and Paprika before dying suddenly from cancer in 2010 at the age of 46. His close associates look back on his career and testify to his incredible artistic legacy.

A genuine cranial osteopath, Satoshi Kon liked to penetrate people’s minds to make reality and fiction collide. He never stopped pushing the limits of what was possible to create animated films equivalent to live-action films. A documentary rich in anecdotes that also reveals little-known facets of the director’s life and work.
