San Diego Comic-Con Official Screening “ART OF THE GAME: Ukiyo-e Heroes”

ART OF THE GAME UH Poster v07

So, do you guys and girls remember the movie Ukiyo-E Heroes? It’s a documentary that I wrote about a month or two ago. Well, the crew emailed me again to give some interesting news. So, that’s why I’m writing a quick follow-up article telling you that there is going to be some new things!

So, if you haven’t read the original article, here is a quick rundown.

A journey of discovery into how a Canadian craftsman and an American designer with a father and son generation gap who collaborate to revive the ancient Japanese woodcut (Ukiyo-e) using pop-culture icons: Super Mario and Pokémon, and now Shadow of the Colossus.

If you are interested and you missed the original screening, well then you are in luck! Since there will be a new screening on SD-ComicCon ’17! This will happen on July 22 at 8:20PM.

But wait, there is more. The screening is followed by Q&A with the artist Jed Henry and the director Toru Tokikawa. If you want to know more, follow this link: http://sched.co/BO2t

Also, there is a new trailer that you can enjoy. This trailer can be found currently pinned on their Facebook page.

Sadly enough, I won’t be able to attend the screening; but if you are in the area, I would highly recommend you going to see it. Since the previous screening was a success. Also, there is talk that the documentary might make the journey overseas into Europe.
