Tiki Clip Show (30 min.), followed by the film:
Plastic Paradise: A Swingin' Trip Through America's Polynesian Obsession
2013, Common Machine, 54 min. Dir. Brett O’Bourke Trailer
The return of American GIs from the Pacific helped launch a postwar Polynesian craze that included candy-colored drinks, crazy Hawaiian shirts, exotic instrumental music and nonstop parties. Today the “tiki” scene (named after the large, wooden sculptures found throughout Polynesia) endures among a new generation, including musician Denny “King Kukulele” Moynahan, cocktail anthropologist Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, tiki historian Sven Kirsten and others, who weigh in on the little-known subculture in this fascinating documentary.

More Tiki in July at the Egyptian!

Discussion following the film with filmmakers Gaspar González and Brett O’Bourke.
