  • Ed Hardy: Tattoo the World

    2010. USA. Directed by Emiko Omori. This documentary, a chronicles of one artist's journey and the evolution of tattooing from marginalization to respectable art form, charts the career of body-art master Ed Hardy from his childhood in southern California in the 1950s to his unexpected rise from cult status to phenomenal international success. Hardy was inexplicably drawn to tattooing and decided to devote his energy to elevating his chosen field. With one foot in the world of tattooing and the other in fine arts, Hardy refined and reinvigorated the ancient craft of body imagery. 75 min.

    2003. USA. Directed by Sandow Birk, Sean Meredith, Paul Zaloom. Based on an exhibition of paintings by Birk, this mock documentary satirizes southern California culture.
