Kon Satoshi’s Millennium Actress remediates film and memory as analogues in order to develop a more plastic indexicality for media without direct material contiguity. Amidst the shift from traditional to new media, Millennium Actress engages the West through intercultural discourses and intracultural responses. Millennium Actress’s plasticised indexicality implies the plastic nature of abstracted referents such as memory, refiguring indexicality as inclusive of anime. By plasticising and abstracting the index through its remediation of film and memory, Millennium Actress reveals anime’s relation to culture, as well as its ability to index subjective and abstracted memories and experiences.
