I'm hoping that all of you have read Jasper Sharp's definitive and exhaustively researched book "Behind the Pink Curtain". Most likely due to reading his book many of you will have checked out the many pink films that have been finding their way to North American DVD via distributors like Pink Eiga and Mondo Macabro. Now, if you're in the San Francisco area you can take your investigation of pink films, roman porno and all that's cinematically sexy about Japanese film to the next level. No, not start surfing the net for free Japanese porn... we mean checking out S-E-X: TokyoScope Vol.4 “Hot Tears of Shame”, a talk on the history of Japanese sex films put on by Patrick Macias and Tomohiro Machiyama on Friday, June 11th at 7:00pm at New People's Viz Cinema. You can get more info about the talk here, and thanks to Patrick Macias' blog for getting the word out there.
