PAPRIKA (35mm) @ The SMC Theater

The Secret Movie Club Theater 1917 BAY ST 2ND FL LOS ANGELES, CA 90021

Anime master of the dark, human, and mysterious Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers) turned in one of his most daring, strange, and imaginative movies with his final feature: Paprika.

Often cited as a potential influence on Inception, Paprika finds us in the near future where a new device “the DC mini” allows people to view other people’s dreams. The problem is there are no restrictions to access and so anyone can enter anyone else’s dreams.

 Whether as an international pop star, music producer or composer, Ryuichi Sakamoto was always an innovator. In the late 1970s, as a member of the Japanese techno pop trio Yellow Magic Orchestra, Sakamoto helped pioneer electronic music with the band’s influence extending well into the present day.

New Film Series:
Life’s Banquet: Food in Films

The Norton Simon Museum is pleased to present a film series organized in conjunction with the exhibition All Consuming: Art and Essence of Food. Filmmaker and educator Joe Petricca has selected five films that explore the many ways that food and drink factor in our lives: as a gesture of social status and wealth; as a dream that immigrants bring to a new country; as a way to share family heritage; to express gratitude; and, of course, as a means of survival.

Held on consecutive Saturday afternoons beginning July 8th in the Museum’s theater. Each film begins with an introduction by Petricca. Free with Museum admission.
