Analog art dreams do come true! Join us for a very special free screening as Nam June Paik and Ryuichi Sakamoto's creative paths beautifully intersect.

Chaotic, playful and impossibly innovative, Nam June Paik's video artwork pays homage to a young Ryuichi Sakamoto and the New York art scene he enters. After an opening sequence that directs its adoring gaze to Sakamoto, his role as subject is soon flipped to host as the pair interview the movers and shakers of the art world.

Joining them are Nam June Paik's all-stars: Laurie Anderson, John Cage, Charlotte Moorman and The Living Theatre's Julian Beck.
