Tomorrow in Brooklyn: Dash Shaw Screens Rare Anime

Cartoonist Dash Shaw, who has been working on a feature-length animated film of his own, will present a selection of his recent animation work on Tuesday, May 21st, at Light Industry (155 Freeman Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn). In addition to his own work, Shaw will screen the rare 1980s anime biker drama Bobby’s Girl, a film that has inspired his own approach to animation.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with Shaw. Doors open at 7pm, and tickets are $7. More details at LightIndustry.org.
