Giveaway: Two Pairs of Tickets to Miss Hokusai Premier (NYC)

Miss Hokusai, the animated film about the daughter of famed ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai, is premiering at the Angelica Film Center in New York City on Thursday October 13. And we’re super excited to be able to partner with the distributor GKIDS to offer our readers two pairs of tickets.

Here’s how to play:

  • We’re offering two (2) pairs of tickets to a screening of Miss Hokusai at the Angelica Film Center in Manhattan
  • For a chance to win, leave a comment below (and don’t forget to enter your email address so we can reach you)
  • 24 hours from now (at 9:30 AM EST) we’ll randomly choose 2 winners
  • Winners will be able to choose their preferred date/time (see here for showtimes) between October 13 – 16.

That’s it! If you haven’t already, check out our article on Oei Katsushika that we wrote last year. Below is a bit more about the film:

As all of Edo flocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently inside his studio. Her masterful portraits, dragons and erotic sketches – sold under the name of her father – are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike. Shy and reserved in public, in the studio O-Ei is as brash and uninhibited as her father, smoking a pipe while sketching drawings that would make contemporary Japanese ladies blush. But despite this fiercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering influence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art. Miss Hokusai‘s bustling Edo (present day Tokyo) is filled with yokai spirits, dragons, and conniving tradesmen, while O-Ei’s relationships with her demanding father and blind younger sister provide a powerful emotional underpinning to this sumptuously-animated coming-of-age tale.

Below are some stills from the film:
