THE past Halloween weekend in the U.S. and Japan was celebrated in a special way — besides cosplaying and massive parade, both countries saw a simultaneous theatrical premiere of Japanese Pop Group Perfume’s first feature documentaryWE ARE Perfume -World Tour 3rd DOCUMENT-”. Perfume fans gathered in their nearby theaters and watched their favorite music group’s growth and evolution, finally to find themselves cheering for the girls in tears and motivated by Perfume to fight for their own lives. An inspiring and memorable Halloween weekend spent with Perfume and fellow fans, hopefully we could celebrate holidays more in this way.

The documentary received U.S. premieres in New York and Los Angeles on two consecutive days, October 31st and November 1st, presenting to the audience Perfume’s true and gentle emotions in a mixture of smile, confusion, excitement, as well as tension during the two-month international live tour. Following the whole tour from Taiwan and finally to New York through the film, while feeling the energy and encouragement from Perfume all over again, fans were especially excited and proud to see the cities and shows that they personally went to got captured by the lens. In Downtown Independent theater, the premiere location of Los Angeles, the audience burst into applause from time to time during the screening, when some of the fans surprisingly saw themselves appear in the movie scenes. To star in the same film with fans and to show that they are growing together with fans, I guess that is Perfume’s way to show gratitude to those who have always been supporting them no matter what. And for fans who just LOVE Perfume, they would do their best for the girls because Perfume deserve it.
