The World Is Mine


The World Is Mine




CATALOGUE TEXT
Hatsune Miku is a musical phenomenon that inspires the masses. Her lyrics hit the fans right in the heart, her style inspires the multitudes and her merchandising is out of this world. What makes her so special? She’s not a human being but a synthesizer software incorporated in an animated character whose music is always fan art. M, the protagonist of this film and a cosplayer incorporating Hatsune Miku, delves into a fairytale world – and fairytales, they say here, “are full of fraud”. M meets sworn members of the Miku cult, encounters a generous helping of Japanese popular culture, and herself.
