Ghost in the Shell

*introduced by Prof Walker White (Computer Science) on Oct 17

director:
Mamoru Oshii

As stunning as any animation film you’ll likely see, surpassing in details even the best computer animation to date, Mamoru Oshii’s meditation on the effect of runaway technology on the very human notion of individuality and existence lead the new wave of existential cyber-films. The story centers on Motoko Kusanagi, an almost fully artificial being who downloads herself into the net to fight computer criminals and rogue programs gone awry. Constantly living through these out-of-body experiences, Motoko is forced to consider her existence among the artificially intelligent.
