Japanese filmmaker Satoshi Kon directs his third anime feature with the holiday film Tokyo Godfathers. The story takes place in Shinjuku, Tokyo, on Christmas Eve. Gin, Hanna and Miyuki are three homeless friends who have formed a kind of makeshift family structure. Their bond is tested when they find an abandoned baby while searching for food in a garbage dump. They have no choice but to care for the infant themselves. The group travels throughout the city, searching for the baby's parents and coping with their personal reactions to the situation. Tokyo Godfathers premiered at the Big Apple Anime Fest in 2003.

One of the most moving, enjoyable and wholly unconventional Christmas stories to come along in a long time. — Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News

In one sense the plot involves returning stolen goods to a thief, but Tokyo Godfathers is really about longing — for family, for children, for parents and for the lost past. — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

This screening made possible by our co-sponsor, KBOO Community Radio.
