Sounds on Screen: Satoshi Kon

20.11.20

Exploring adult and deeply psychological themes in his works, Satoshi Kon used the limitless expanse of animation to bend reality to his will. Through the lens of vivid dreams and nightmares, Kon tackled very real themes of alienation, love and loss. He sadly passed away in 2010, aged only 46, but his cinematography and playful direction has influenced a generation of cult filmakers like Darren Aronofsky and Christopher Nolan.

Florence Scott-Anderton collates an hour of soundtrack moments and audio excerpts from Kon's small but intensely imaginative oeuvre.
