Takashi Murakami's "Jellyfish Eyes"
Known for his ocular aesthetic and pop-art-inspired wall installations, Japanese mixed-media artist Takashi Murakami brings his feature filmmaking debut "Jellyfish Eyes" to the Film Independent at LACMA film series on Monday, April 8th. This is the film's international premiere.

Like his contemporary visual art, Murakami's colorful film juxtaposes cute-and-cuddly with the grotesque. Blending CGI and live-action, "Jellyfish Eyes" follows a young boy who moves to a small city in the Japanese countryside. But Masashi soon discovers that inside the apartment he shares with his mother lives a tiny monster, and that beneath this strange city is a sordid bedrock of conspiracies, cults and evil experiments. Allegedly, this ambitious film was ten years in the making.

Murakami will be present for a Q&A following the 7:30 PM show. Get more info about "Jellyfish Eyes" and the screening from Film Independent and LACMA, and watch a very weird trailer below.
