ALL ABOUT LILY CHOU-CHOU d. Shunji Iwai, 2001 + Recorded intro by Joanne McNeil, author of Lurking, presented by Lost Futures at The Prince Charles (10 NOV 20:20).

  • “Made by the acclaimed director of LOVE LETTER and APRIL STORY, Shunji Iwai’s ALL ABOUT LILY CHOU-CHOU is told through the eyes of Yuichi (Hayato Ichihara), an eighth-grader obsessed with the ethereal J-Pop idol Lily Chou-Chou, a character inspired by Canto-pop artist and actress Faye Wong and compared often to Bjork. Creating a fan-site through which a loyal coterie of ‘Lilyphiles’ trade gossip, information, and speculation, Yuichi takes increasing solace in this fictional world, using the strength of the community to overcome his crippling shyness and the harsh realities of the outside world, before meeting up with other devotees for real at a mega-concert.”
