Toypunks at the Aurora, Tonight & Tomorrow
In somewhat cheerier news: the awesome-sounding Toypunks documentary will be showing tonight & tomorrow night (August 16th-17th) at the . Showtimes are 8PM tonight & 3PM tomorrow.
The film looks at the crazy, Technicolor world of Japanese toys, which these days blend in with fashion, design, and art in general, w/lots of interviews with influential people in the field. Houston-based (I think?) filmmakers Chris Nelson and Carl Wormley will be there to show the movie, and Nelson’s doing a talk at the Menil on Sunday at 1PM called “Video Salon: From Superflat to Anime Network to Toypunks“. I have yet to see the movie, but it sounds damn cool to me (and no, I’m not a Japanese toy junkie)…
