In an anime art style, a girl with short black hair sits looking pensive in front of a cyberpunk city.

Considered one of the greatest anime films of all time, Bijou and EPX Studio are proud to co-present Ghost in the Shell (1995) the masterpiece of visionary director Mamoru Oshii.

Cyborg federal agent Major Motoko Kusanagi trails "The Puppet Master," who illegally hacks into the computerized minds of cyborg-human hybrids. Her pursuit of a man who can modify the identity of strangers leaves Motoko pondering her own makeup and what life might be like if she had more human traits. With her partner, she corners the hacker, but her curiosity about her identity sends the case in an unforeseen direction.
