From the visionary mind of director Masaaki Yuasa (MIND GAME, LU OVER THE WALL) comes THE NIGHT IS SHORT, WALK ON GIRL, winner of this year's Japan Academy Prize for animated feature. As a group of teens go out for a night on the town in Kyoto, a sophomore known only as "The Girl with Black Hair” experiences a series of surreal encounters with the local nightlife… all the while unaware of the romantic longings of Senpai, a fellow student who has been creating increasingly fantastic and contrived reasons to run into her, in an effort to win her heart.

AFTER HOURS meets SCOTT PILGRIM in this "up-all-night" comedy for teens and adults that only Masaaki Yuasa could envision. This "surrealist romp through Kyoto's streets" (GamesRadar) comes complete with a God of Used Books, a guerrilla musical theatre troupe, a wise old man with a taste for extra spicy ramen, and cameos from the popular Tatami Galaxy series. Lovers of Japanese cinema are sure to enjoy the lush nocturnal imagery and heartfelt humor in this film that "assures us that we are all interconnected and that staying in the moment will allow us to live richer lives." (The Irish Times)
