Event Description

Following the long-awaited New York premiere of his first live-action feature film Jellyfish Eyes, Takashi Murakami who is one of the most influential artists to emerge from Asia in the late 20th Century; successfully bridges fine art, design, animation, fashion and pop culture, will give a free talk at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater.

In Jellyfish Eyes, Murakami transforms the classic cinematic trope of the new kid on the block into a genre-defying adventure. Having recently lost his father, young Masashi moves with his mother to a small city in the Japanese countryside. But when he discovers that their new apartment is already inhabited by a pint-sized, gravity-defying creature, Masashi begins to pull back the curtain on this sleepy town and finds that very little is what it appears to be. As a connoisseur of Japanese popular culture, from children’s manga and anime to classic monster movies, Murakami packs his film with a delirious abundance of ideas and imagery. What other coming-of-age fantasy has romance, battling CGI avatars, nuclear intrigue, rival doppelgängers, and a giant monster?

Tickets for the screening are $13 for general public, $9 for Students/Seniors; and $8 for Film Society members. Post talk is free! Visit to purchase, and for more information.
