In 2027, one year after the end of the Fourth World War, young Motoko Kusagani, major in the 501st secret military unit, is hired by chief officer Arakami to investigate an attack in Newport City. But our cyber-commissioner soon finds herself in the middle of a nationwide hacking crisis that threatens the lives of millions of citizens. Moreover, her well known talents in the hacking business don’t help Motoko, as they turn her into a potential suspect. But, between fighting cyborg mercenaries who want to spread a virus on the Internet and the intrigues and conspiracies between the members of the 501st, Motoko has little time to pop up at the precinct for a cross-examination. Almost 20 years after the release of Mamoru Oshii’s Ghost in the Shell, the BIFFF brings you two episodes of the awaited prequel: Ghost Pain and Ghost Whisper. Both directed by Kazuchika Kise, an anime veteran who has worked on the genesis of GITS and also on Jin-Roh, Evangelion and Vampire Hunter D: Blood Lus, these new episodes are a mind-blowing mix of heavy battles, cutting edge scifi, action and a whodunit that would make Sherlock Holmes tear his hair out.
