GKIDS, the acclaimed distributor of multiple Academy Award-nominated animated features, will continue its partnership with Fathom Events for the new film by Masaaki Yuasa titled 'The Night is Short, Walk On Girl'. 

The film is a fantastic and surreal comedy that follows a group of teens who go out for a night in Kyoto. A sophomore known only as “The Girl with Black Hair” experiences a series of surreal encounters with the local nightlife. She is 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. The film is set to debut in US cinemas on Tuesday, August 21 followed by an encore showing on Wednesday, August 22 at 7:00 pm local time (both dates).
