Ghost in the Shell

When: Tue., Feb. 7 2017

Ghost in the Shell, a 1995 anime science fiction film, follows a cyborg policewoman and her partner as they try to catch a powerful hacker named the Puppet Master. It takes place in the year 2029 and society has become so intensely information orientated that hacking and cybercrime is a widespread problem. In order to try and solve this network hacking, Section 9 is formed, which contains cyborgs that have the ability to access any network on earth. The cyborg policewoman Major Motoko Kusanagi leads a law enforcement team using triangulation to seek out the film’s hacker and main antagonist, the Puppet Master. This intense, complex cyber chase proves to be extremely difficult and to make matters worse, the Puppet Master leaves a series of decoys, dead ends and little to no evidence for Section 9 to catch him. The subtitled version of the film shows at 7:30 tonight at the Cedar Lee Theater. Regular admission rates apply. (Elizabeth Manno)
