Event Details


2011 – directed by Eric Khoo


TATSUMI celebrates the life and work of Japanese comics artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi—a manga pioneer who elevated the genre to a new level of creative expression and adult realism. In the late 1950s, Tatsumi coined the term gekiga (dramatic pictures) and redefined the manga landscape with an alternative genre for adults. Realistic and disquieting, his work began to grapple with the darker aspects of life in his rapidly changing country—with stories that are perverse, shocking and darkly comic. A tribute to an artist who made comics cinematic, filmmaker Eric Khoo’s (BE WITH ME) inventive animated drama brings the Tatsumi’s memoir A Drifting Life and five of his classic stories to life.


98 minutes – in Japanese with English subtitles – presented on Blu-ray – a Kimstim release
