All her life, quirky Haruko has longed for a "real paranormal phenomenon." Bullied by others as an outsider, she vents her frustration by shouting at her television… until her television shouts back. Turning into a humanoid tele-man, the old analog set becomes Haruko’s friend, then lover, then star of his own television show. A bizarre satire on television-obsessed culture, Takeba’s anything-goes film plays in a Neo-Dada sandbox with the Pop Art toys of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. -Bears Fonte
