The 2009 edition of Japan Film Festival – Los Angeles will launch with the L.A. premier of the latest anime opus from Mamoru Oshii (GHOST IN THE SHELL). The story involves “Kildren” – ageless fighter pilots, living in adolescence until they die in battle, who were created to fight in an endless war to “entertain” the peacetime people. The festival offers several other interesting titles, but none of them are overt genre items.
