Human Lost is an upcoming animated film adaptation of Japanese novelist Osamu Dazai’s 1948 novel Ningen Shikkaku (No Longer Human). It is set for worldwide release in 2019.
It has been revealed that the film will premiere at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France.
The annual festival was created in 1960 and celebrates around 230 films from around the world every year with an attendance rate of approximately 120,000.
The film’s story is set in 2036. A breakthrough in medical science has led to the creation of nanomachines, and the S.H.E.L.L. system that controls them, which ensures humans are free from disease and injury and extends their lifespan to 120. But this ultimate social system has warped the Japanese nation in a number of ways, whether it be economical disparities, serious environmental pollution, or the “Human Lost” phenomenon that malforms people disconnected from the S.H.E.L.L. network.
