Kitsune Mask


COPA Shorts Film Festival

2017 Short Screenplay Winner


When biracial, futuristic police officer Jay Yoshikawa

went to Japan to pay her respects to her deceased

grandparents, she didn’t intend to bring home the

family’s secret and unleash it on the citizens of San

Francisco. Now, this highly-trained cop must release

her control to a yokai-fighting, nine-tailed fox entity

to become Kitsune Mask and defeat the soul-sucking

ice demon Yuki-Onna (Snow Woman) before she takes

the lives of Jay’s best friend and her love interest.
