Tadanori Yokoo

Another figure from the Animation Festival I should probably mention is Tadanori Yokoo 横尾忠則, since he was one of the first to take part. But the fact is, the three shorts he contributed to the first and second festivals -- Kiss Kiss Kiss and Anthology No. 1 in 1964 and Kachi Kachi Yama 堅々獄夫婦庭訓 in 1965 -- are the only three he ever made. He is mainly known as a designer of psychedelic/collage-type posters, which have been shown in galleries everywhere including the Guggenheim and the Centre Pompidou. But he's a well-known enough figure due to the latter that the three films (totaling 17 minutes) were recently released on DVD.
