The Beguiling and The Toronto Comic Arts Festival are proud to partner with the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival to present the Canadian Premiere screening of TATSUMI on Friday, November 9th, at 11:00pm. Tickets are now available at http://reelasian.com/index.php/festival/film-festival-schedule/details/312-tatsumi.
Directed by Eric Khoo, TATSUMI is the innovative exploration of the life of comic author Yoshihiro Tatsumi, creator of Gekiga (“serious pictures” as opposed to Manga, which means “funny pictures”). Adapting his most renown period short stories, set in the time period following World War II, and incorporating elements of Tatsumi’s own life from the memoir Drifting Life, TATSUMI is a fascinating, uniquely animated and performed film that has drawn ravesat Cannes, Dubai, Rotterdam, and around the world.
The Beguiling and TCAF are very proud to be partnering with Reel Asian for this screening, and we feel it likely that the screening will sell out, so please make sure to get your tickets early. http://reelasian.com/index.php/festival/film-festival-schedule/details/312-tatsumi.
All of Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s graphic novels, including The Push Man, Abandon The Old In Tokyo, Good-Bye, Drifting Life, and Fallen Words are currently available for sale at The Beguiling.
