Multi-disciplinary artist Takashi Murakami directed his first feature film, Jellyfish Eyes, which reflects his unique artistic style. The film is a live-action movie that’s 101 minutes long and features computer-generated monsters that only real children can see.

The film is set in a fictional Japanese town where a young boy befriends a creature belonging to an alien race called Friends. Friends come in different forms and sizes and it turns out that each child has his or her own little monster creature. The children are the only ones who see the Friends and they believe that they can control the creatures using an iPhone-like device. The kids begin to use their Friends to bully each other until they find out that they have become part of a sinister plot.
