Within the layered cosmopolitan worlds of anime, the medium allows for an exploration of potential architectures and of ambient space. Join us in a rare screening of Mike Arias’ visually wondrous “Tekkon Kinkreet” to explore these imaginary architectures that create an ether of utopian possibility or an admonition of future dystopia.

Speakers feature:
Anthony Weintraub, Screenwriter of “Tekkonkinkreet”
Prof. David Grahame Shane, Columbia University and Cooper Union Architecture Departments and author ofRecombinant Urbanism: Conceptual Modeling in Architecture, Urban Design and City Theory
Jini Kim Watson, Assistant Professor at the English Department, NYU
and moderated by Tom Looser, Associate Professor of East Asian Studies at NYU.
