The Atrocity Exhibition (2 short features and 1 short back to back)
North American Premiere
Co-presented with The New York Asian Film Festival


In this award-winning first short film from Hajime Ohata, director of Henge, a rundown, family-owned iron works gets a quick, lucrative job from a client who wants them to disassemble a revolver and make at least 10 copies. Owner Ikuo agrees, because he really doesn't have any choice. The client, however, is the yakuza, and once Ikuo turns in his job, his shop will become nothing more than a production facility for death. And so Ikuo fights back the only way he knows how: by building another gun--but this time he's building The Big Gun.

Japan. 2008. 31 min., HD Cam, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Hajime Ohata. With Takahiro Ono, Hiromi Miyagawa.
