About the Movie
A journey of discovery into how an American and a Canadian artists with a father and son generation gap team up to revive the ancient Japanese woodcut printing by juxtaposing traditional art with pop culture icons: Super Mario and Pokémon.
Video Game Icons Meet Ancient Japan....
Modern Video Games + Ancient Japenese Artwork = unexpectly fascinating and entertaining. This is one of those documentaries that if you take a chance on it, you'll feel rewarded for stepping outside your comfort zone.
An honest look in the life of a traditional craftsman.
Anybody interested in the art world will enjoy seeing a master working on his craft. David Bull is a unique, charming, warm man. I love hearing him talk.
Recommended to not only gamers, pop-culture and art communities but also for families.
An intimate glimpse of the life of artist duo who make wonderful art together despite generation gap and distance. I really loved the subjects story of Father and Son through art and craft, although they don’t have biological connection. I think this film will evoke conversations between parents and children when they watch together.
This is a film about cultural mishmash, East meets West, Digital meets Analogue, Old meets New via Video Game and Japanese Woodcut… Great photographies of wood carving scenes, rural Japan as well as the last Japanese craftsmen and craftswomen of the dying art (Japanese handmade paper maker, knifesmith, brush maker lady, etc) - their way of life is just mind-blowing and so inspiring.
