Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo!

The Gene Siskel Film Center recently screened this charming and odd film about the Japanese fascination with insects: Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo. This is a cultural sensibility I can really get behind and feel kindred with, perhaps for obvious reasons. Some of the editing was a little strange and it would have been nice to get a wider spectrum of how insects run through Japanese culture (the TV shows for kids!), but wonderful all the same.

I thought you might be interested to know that Beetle Queen is campaigning on in the hopes of raising enough money to screen in theaters around the country.
