A solo exhibition of works by director, Iwai Shunji.
“Generally, people call me a Director or Filmmaker. However I feel like I’m just a kid who’s having fun. I like drawing, taking photos, writing novels and composing music. This time, I focused on pictures I drew. Please enjoy them.”
The exhibition will feature some story board art, drawn by Iwai as well as some of his photographs. Iwai Shunji is scheduled to appear in person at the exhibition reception.
There will also be a special screening of Iwai Shunji’s Vampire on Friday, April 26, from 7-10pm at the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.

I’m proud to have directed David Horvath.

Last week’s Evens gig at The Vex was great. As the progressively heavier sound of their albums implies, the live show has become more rocking as Ian Mackaye and Amy Farina’s musical partnership rolls along. >>
