Hey, San Francisco friends. Just wanted to remind you about the Center for Asian American Media and the Japan Center Mall's special series of free events in Japantown Peace Plaza, including film screenings and karaoke contests. This Saturday, December 11, they're showing Satoshi Kon's Tokyo Godfathers. Here's the trailer:

And here are some more details about the outdoor screening:
Saturday, December 11, 2010 | 7:00 PM

Christmas in Tokyo, Japan. Three homeless friends: a young girl, a transvestite, and a middle-aged bum. While foraging through some trash, they find an abandoned newborn. Hana, the transvestite with delusions of being a mother, convinces the others to keep it overnight. The next day, using a key found with the baby, they start tracking down the parents, with many adventures along the way.

Early arrival highly suggested. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Would be great if you could make it. Be sure to bundle up -- or bring some friends to huddle up with -- it's going to get chilly! And it might get crowded, so make sure you get there early to stake out your spot.
