Tekkon Kinkreet Screening and Q&A
with Creator Taiyo Matsumoto, Director Michael Arias, & Screenwriter Anthony Weintraub
Thursday, May 09, 2013
7pm-11pm, Doors at 6:30pm.
Innis Town Hall Theatre, 2 Sussex Ave, Toronto, Ontario
Join us for a screening of Taiyo Matsumoto's Tekkon Kinkreet!
Tekkon Kinkreet is the story of a pair of orphaned street kids – the tough, canny Kuro and the childish, innocent Shiro, together known as the Cats – as they deal with yakuza attempting to take over Treasure Town. This film is a stunning and true adaptation of the manga, and definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film's Director, Michael Arias, Screenwriter Anthony Weintraub, and Taiyo Matsumoto himself! The Q&A will be followed by a brief signing.
Tekkonkinkreet is available on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
