Bosko and the Rebirth of Tiki
A documentary about Bosko's art and role in the Tiki revival.
We are excited to announce a DVD / Streaming release sometime late fall. The release will feature an extended version with plenty of extra footage you haven't seen (if you were lucky enough to catch a screening).
The film follows Bosko 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, building the first proper home Tiki bar and much more. Much of what Polynesian Pop devotees take for granted today began with Hrnjak 30 years ago in Escondido. And even the many who know his work have not yet heard his story.
The film is directed by Kurt Mattila ("Stuntman," and Peter Gabriel's "The Veil"), produced by Rob Wilson (Oliver Stone's "The Putin Interviews" and Jim Jarmusch's "Gimme Danger"). Based on extensive interviews with Hrnjak and his wife and collaborator Truus De Groot, it contains further commentary from fellow Polynesian Pop luminaries Jeff "Beachbum" Berry and Sven Kirsten.
