“Big in Japan” Documentary Screening

7:00pm – 11:00pm
¥2,375 (advance sales)¥2,375 (on the door)

Big in Japan is a laugh-out-loud investigation into the complex, ever-changing nature of fame in modern culture and the wacky phenomenon of foreign celebrity in Japan. This exclusive Q&A screening includes a very special appearance by stars of the film, including everyone’s favorite cross-dressing rock god, Ladybeard!

After hearing about the huge demand for foreign talents in Japan, three Aussie filmmakers ship their lives to Tokyo on an outrageous DIY mission to make ‘ordinary’ Dave famous. Along the way, they meet an eclectic ensemble of gaijin tarento (foreign talents) at various stages of the celebrity journey: a feisty Aussie cross-dresser, a starry-eyed Canadian J-pop wannabe and veteran TV sweetheart, Bob “The Beast” Sapp. But just how far must they go to reach the masses that real celebrity requires? A decidedly anti-Hollywood fame documentary.

PLEASE NOTE: Enough tickets must be sold before November 20th to ensure this screening goes ahead, if it doesn’t happen, purchased tickets will be refunded—no one loses out!
