Rum and Games: Hori Smoku screenings in Sydney now set for Melbourne

26/04/2012

Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry: The Life and Times of Norman K. Collins has played to a sell-out audience at the old Paramount building in Surry Hills. Upon arrival guests were greeted by roller girls and were treated to a hot dog kiosk by Yummy Dogs D.I.Y. Live tattoing and live music from rockabilly artist Pat Capocci also featured in addition to arm-wrestling and rum drinking thanks to sponsor Sailor Jerry. Currently screenings are also being held at the Lightbulb in North Bondi. A repeat performance is being scheduled for Melbourne in May.

Collins, a former merchant marine, who lived a hard and fast lifestyle eventually became an icon in Hawaii for his daring Eastern influenced tattoo designs and is regarded as one of the pioneering ink artists having inspired the likes of Ed Hardy.

"The night was a great opportunity to celebrate with Curious friends and family the release of a documentary that relishes in the exciting life and times of such a fascinating cultural icon," said Peter Grasse of Curious Film.
