Roxy Cinema, Pioneer Works, NYRB, and Dash Shaw come together to present a screening of Shaw's 2021 adult animated feature, Cryptozoo, and launch of his latest graphic novel, Blurry.

Out this August from New York Review Comics, Blurry wrestles with the murky indeterminacy of life. Shaw, one of contemporary comics' most celebrated authors, asks that readers sit in—try to enjoy, even—that place of doubt and indecision, where the future is uncertain, identity is unsettled, and chance encounters intrude. An uneasy place that most avoid at all costs, Shaw leads his caravan of characters right to its core. 

The Sundance and Berlinale award-winning Cryptozoo, on the other hand, is about a misguided zoo that rescues and houses mythological creatures. Part experimental film and part blockbuster disaster movie, Cryptozoo bears a clear link to Shaw's comics work, just as, conversely, Blurry represents Shaw's distinctly cinematic storytelling sensibility.

There will be a Q&A and book-signing with Shaw following the screening. 

Tickets are required.
