The genius Dash Shaw
has been touring across the country in support of his latest graphic novel, New School
, as well as the one-shot comic book, 3 New Stories
. On Tuesday, May 21st
, he brings at all back home to Brooklyn with an animation screening at Light Industry
in the lovely Greenpoint neighborhood.
Dash will screen his animation works, from cinematic permutations of his own comics, as well as adaptations of game shows and reality tv that marry their source materials' original audio tracks with a series of static illustrations to uncanny effect — Wheel of Fortune never seemed so heartbreaking, or so strange.
Rounding out the lineup is a film chosen by Shaw that he finds resonant with the concerns of his particular hand-drawn animation techniques: Bobby’s Girl, an '80s anime rarity about a teenage biker, his pen pal, and his death drive.
Please note: seating is limited, and first-come, first-served, so get there early! Box office opens at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $7.00, and are available at door.
is located at 155 Freeman Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, in a ground-floor space shared with Triple Canopy and The Public School New York.
