Blim Presents:
FLIM (*NEW* film event)

featuring: Emperor Tomato Ketchup (Japan 1971)

Flim is a new night curated by Yuriko Iga of Blim. It will feature avant-garde films, of the narrative, non-narrative and experimental nature with an emphasis on Japanese underground. These are rare films that are not to be missed. Flim will be every 4th friday of the month. Please join in the strangeness.

Made in 1970 and directed by controversial Japanese filmmaker Shuji Terayama, Emperor Tomato Ketchup is a high concept underground art film about a world where children rebel against their oppressive parents and create a new society made up of sex, role playing and eventual violence. Kind of like a perverse Lord of the Flies, the film piles on the style and the shocking imagery in order to create the utmost artistic affect on the viewer. It has gained a cult following, due largely to the fact that Stereolab named their 1996 album after the film.
