Tiki Night 2018 - Bosko and Rolly

Egyptian Theatre
6712 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood, CA 90028

A Tiki Marketplace will open at 4:00 PM in the Egyptian Theatre Courtyard, selling new and vintage Tiki-related art, memorabilia, clothing, accessories and more. Starting at 5:00 PM, King Kukulele & The Friki Tikis and the Polynesian Paradise Dancers will perform alongside a no-host bar.

“Bosko” (2018, 30 min. Dir. Kurt Mattila) This documentary portrait of Bosko Hrnjak. follows the artist through his childhood in Los Angeles, education at Art Center College of Design and his unsung, pioneering work as the first individual to revive the lost art of carving Tikis, sculpting Tiki ceramics and building the first proper home Tiki bar. Much of what Polynesian Pop devotees take for granted today began with Hrnjak 30 years ago in Escondido. Based on extensive interviews with Hrnjak and his wife and collaborator Truus de Groot, the film contains further commentary from fellow Polynesian Pop luminaries such as Jeff “Beachbum” Berry and Sven Kirsten.

“The Whimsical Imagineer” (2018, 29 min. Dir. Ken Kebow) When Rolly Crump interviewed for an animation job at Disney back in the 1950s, he was told he had “the worst portfolio of anyone ever hired at Disney Animation Studio,” but it turned out he was one of the best hires the company ever made. Working with Walt Disney himself, as well as the original group of Disney Imagineers, Rolly went on to create some of Disneyland's most beloved attractions, including the Haunted Mansion, the Enchanted Tiki Room and It's a Small World. The recipient of numerous awards and accolades, this documentary takes viewers on an informative and entertaining journey with Rolly himself, as well as Disney legend Bob Gurr, Rolly's son and Imagineer Chris Crump and a number of others who worked with Rolly over the years to help create “the happiest place on earth!”

Discussion between films with documentary subjects Bosko Hrnjak and Rolly Crump (via Skype), moderated by King Kukulele.
