Jerry Beck's Animation Tuesdays: Daydreams & Nightmares (feat. Paprika!)

Enter the mysterious world of the subconscious at our next Animation Tuesday event! Move over, Chris Nolan; cartoon historian Jerry Beck will introduce Satoshi Kon’s 2006 anime masterpiece Paprika, the film that inspired Nolan’s Inception. Kon was there first with this story about a research psychologist who uses a device that permits therapists to help patients by entering their dreams. Across the film, dreams and reality merge, and run amuck throughout Tokyo — all animated by Studio Madhouse (Wicked City, Batman: Gotham Nights), in one of the wildest cartoon features ever made. Jerry will also open the evening with a carefully selected mini-festival of classic Hollywood cartoon shorts that center around the world of dreams, featuring Bugs Bunny, Pluto, Little Audrey and Little Lulu!
Paprika Dir. Satoshi Kon, 2006, 35mm, 90 min.
