Green Screen Film Series: Jellyfish Eyes

World-renowned contemporary artist Takashi Murakami makes his feature film debut with Jellyfish Eyes. The Pokémon-influenced coming-of-age story follows Masashi, a boy who moves to a sleepy town in the wake of an unnatural disaster only to discover that he and his new classmates can summon and control a menagerie of monster companions.

This visual tour-de-force brings Murakami’s wildly imaginative, trademark creatures into live action. Japanese with English subtitles, for film lovers ages 8 and up. (2013, 101 min.)

BYO Picnics are welcome, with food and frozen treats also available for purchase at the event from Hand Helds and Pop Art.
