Despite its rather exotic topic, the film has a Houston connection. Filmmaker and toy enthusiast Justin Kovalsky was an editor at an anime magazine here when he met Chris Nelson, then the art director of the newly launched Anime Network. Kovalsky left Houston, but when he was ready to shoot his documentary two years later, he turned to Nelson for help. Nelson will attend both of the films screenings. 8 p.m. Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday. Aurora Picture Show, 800 Aurora. For information, call 713-868-2101 or visit www.aurorapictureshow.org. $6.
