Saturday, March 16: Creatures of Yes (screening / DVD release)


Saturday March 16th, 951 Chung King Road opens its doors and lends its venue to a new screening series programmed by Nick Toti. We'll celebrate the magical, time-bending work of filmmaker/puppeteer/musician Jacob Graham with his DIY puppet series Creatures of Yes. This event will also celebrate the release of a limited edition Creatures of Yes DVD. Jacob Graham will be in attendance for a (possible) live performance and Q&A following the screening hosted by filmmaker/writer Nick Toti.
 
Creatures of Yes is a new experimental television show made by Jacob Graham and Co. in Brooklyn NY. It's about people discovering the world around them and learning to appreciate each other's differences. It addresses modern, relevant topics head-on with humor and sensitivity.

Jacob Graham is a Brooklyn based puppeteer, musician, and laser light artist who began his career as a puppeteer with the Walt Disney Company in 2002. He's recently worked with Basil Twist, Furry Puppet Studio, and Up In Arms puppet troupe.

Nick Toti is the producer/director of The Complete History of Seattle and various other works. When he has the energy, he also writes for the film website Hammer to Nail.
