Thought this would be of interest to Japanese film fans and fans of Japanese pop culture in general. Japanese pop art phenome Takashi Murakami's agency Kaikai Kiki represents a group of artists who share in Murakami's anime inspired aesthetic. One of them, an artists known only as Mr. has moved from painting (above) to film with a newly directed short titled "Nobody Dies". The short film about a group of girls who take part in a paint ball war game will premiere just before Mr's November exhibition at Lehmann Maupin Gallery in Manhattan. Check out the trailer for "Nobody Dies" below.
Thanks to Jean Snow for the details on this.
