Perfect Blue, the groundbreaking and rarely screened first film from the legendary director Satoshi Kon (Paprika), returns to theaters on September 6 and 10 for a special 20 th anniversary event from Fathom Events and GKIDS.

Rising pop star Mima quit singing to pursue a career as an actress and model, but her fans aren't ready to see her go. Encouraged by her managers, Mima takes on a recurring role on a popular TV show, when suddenly her handlers and collaborators begin turning up murdered. Harboring feelings of guilt and haunted by visions of her former self, Mima's reality and fantasy meld into a frenzied paranoia. As her stalker closes in, the threat he poses is more real than even Mima knows.
