Ghost In The Shell (Kôkaku kidôtai - 1995)

Production I.G Ghost In The Shell

2029 A.D. - The near future, where corporate networks cover the planet, electrons and light saturate the world, but informatization has not yet erased boundaries between nations and among ethnic groups.

It is a time when networks of information envelope the world in many layers, and computer crime and cyber terrorism takes place daily. Motoko Kusanagi of National Public Security Section 9 is sent to investigate an elusive hacker called the Puppet Master, for whom there are international arrest warrants. "Puppet Master" is a code name that comes from the particular technique used by the criminal -hacking human brains to control memory and behavior- but in fact, his identity is unknown.

After investigating a number of incidents, Kusanagi seems be getting closer to the Puppet Master than ever, but the reality is that the Puppet Master was also trying to approach her. And when, finally, the mysterious criminal comes face to face with Major Kusanagi of Section 9, truth seems to surpass any imagination...

Major Motoko Kusanagi: You talk about redefining my identity. I want a guarantee that I can still be myself.

Puppet Master: There isn't one. Why would you wish to? All things change in a dynamic environment. Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.

Puppet Master: It can also be argued that DNA is nothing more than a program designed to preserve itself. Life has become more complex in the overwhelming sea of information. And life, when organized into species, relies upon genes to be its memory system. So, man is an individual only because of his intangible memory... and memory cannot be defined, but it defines mankind. The advent of computers, and the subsequent accumulation of incalculable data has given rise to a new system of memory and thought parallel to your own. Humanity has underestimated the consequences of computerization.

Bato: There's nothing sadder than a puppet without a ghost, especially the kind with red blood running through them.

Project2501: i am connected to a vast network that has been beyond your reach and experience. to humans it is like staring at the sun, a blinding brightness that conceals the source of great power. we have been subordinated to our limitations until now. the time has come to cast aside these bounds and elevate our consciousness to higher plain. it is time to become a part of all things.
