Ushio Shinohara boxes a canvas
One of the weirdest, coolest things that happened over True/False weekend was when Ushio Shinohara punched a large, blank canvas with paint-covered boxing gloves. Shinohara was the subject of Cutie and the Boxer, one of the most anticipated documentaries at True/False.
- KBIA Assistant News Director, Ryan Famuliner, interviewed filmmaker Zachary Heinzerling ahead of the fest. It was part of "True/False Conversations," our series of in-depth interviews with the filmmakers of True/False 2013.
- The filmmaker (far left) and his subjects, Noriko and Ushio Shinohara (middle) came to Columbia. Here, they're taking questions from the audience after their screening at the Missouri Theatre.
- The demonstration happened Sunday at 5:00. Here waits Ushio's victim in the parking lot of the Tiger Cleaners.
- The artists:
- Shinohara de-shirts and dons gloves:
- Always right to left, always fast. Shinohara's been painting this way since the 1960s.
- Afterwards Shinohara posed for pictures and even boxed some peoples' shirts for them.
- David Wilson (right) is one of the founders of True/False, which turned 10 this year.
