A couple weeks ago we reported on how there was going to be a 2-week retrospective of the films of Shinya Tsukamoto held in Shibuya. Not to be felt left out New Yorkers are going to get their won Tsukamoto event this Saturday, April 24th, courtesy of the Tribeca Film Festival. Tsukamoto's latest film "Tetsuo: The Bullet Man" will be having its American premiere at the fest and to mark the occasion Shinya Tsukamoto will be on hand for a panel discussion being held at the Apple Retail Store in SoHo (103 Prince Street). Moderated by Japanese film blogger and Midnight Eye contributor Nicholas Rucka the panel dicussion will be a huge treat for fans of Tsukamoto and his "Tetsuo" trilogy of films.
