Fri 14 Aug 8.30pm35MM, COLOUR, DOLBY DIGITAL, 90 MINUTES, JAPAN, JAPANESE (ENGLISH SUBTITLES) / DIRECTOR: MITSURU MEIKE ‘Sachiko Hanai is a call girl at a sexual role-playing club. One day she wanders into a restaurant and stumbles into a gun battle. When a stray bullet hits her in the center of her forehead and lodges in her brain, strange things start to happen. Not only is she able to solve complex mathematical problems, speak foreign languages and expound upon the politics of Noam Chomsky, but she also finds herself in possession of the cloned finger of President George Bush. Director Meike Mitsuru's film is a "pink," or soft-core, movie, one of a popular Japanese genre that has proven to be a stepping stone for up and coming directors. [This is] a bizarre, satirical piece that may offend.’ Austin Film Festival
