Viz Pictures is bringing their New People Artist Series into the new year with an indie documentary focusing on photographer Daido Moriyama. One of the standout features of the doc is the fact that Moriyama has avoided media appearances until now, making it a unique and rare look into the way the man works, while also documenting his virgin foray into digital photography.
To celebrate the January 26 DVD release of Daido Moriyama: Stray Dog of Tokyo (pictured below), Viz Pictures is hosting a special one night theatrical screening of the film on the same date at Viz Cinema, located inside the New People store in San Francisco.
Tickets are $25, and they include a copy of the DVD, a postcard, and a New People pin along with film admission. For information on getting tickets to check it out, head over to the Viz Cinema site. Let us know on our forums if you end up attending, we’d love to read your impressions of the event!
