San Francisco's Roxie Theater to Show Mirai Mizue's Wonder Full! Anthology Film
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Roxie Theater in San Francisco will screen Mirai Mizue's Wonder Full! film, a collection of his abstract shorts that includes the director's own crowdfunded "Wonder" film, on December 16. The full list of shorts includes: Wonder, Modern No. 2, JAM, Minamo, Fantastic Cell, Metropolis, Tatamp, Trip! Trap!, Modern, Lost Utopia, Devour Dinne, Adamski, Playground, and And And. The film is screening as part of the theater's "Nippon Nights" programming.
Mizue successfully funded "Wonder" through Kickstarter last year. Mizue created the short over the course of 365 days by animating one second, or 24 frames of abstract art, each day. Mizue created a total of 8,760 drawings with the help of 160 painters. Mizue began working on the film on April 1, 2012 and finished on March 31, but turned to Kickstarter to raise funds for a soundtrack, editing costs, and creating a 35mm print.
The theater is also screening Yukihiro Kato's Idol is Dead on October 23 and Moriro Miyamoto's Save the Club Noon on November 11.
