A Christmas Special Appears!
After an amazing 2023 BAFF we’re back as part of the Mockingbiord’s Alternative Christmas Film Festival! Join us on Sunday 17th December for a screening of Tokyo Godfathers!
From legendary director Satoshi Kon (Millennium Actress, Paprika), an unconvential Christmas story. One Christmas Eve, three homeless people—a middle-aged alcoholic named Gin with a gambling addiction, a trans woman named Hana hoopping for her own christmas miracle, and a dependent teenage runaway named Miyuki with anger aissues—discover an abandoned newborn on Christmas Eve.
On the baby is a note asking the finder to take good care of her and a key, leading to a bag with clues to the parents’ identity. The trio sets out to find the parents. Hana names the baby Kiyoko, based on the Japanese translation of “Silent Night”. On the way they meet multiple characters of Tokyo life and their pasts. A wondorous blend of comedy, pathos and melodrama crossed with hard-boiled action, and enormous coincidence.
