Thursday, July 3 is the day before independence day in the US, so we’re calling it Dependence Day and celebrating our sick dependency on Asian movies by showing some of our best films, all in a row. Also, we’re giving out massive prizes. We’re getting rid of tons of swag that hasn’t been given out yet, plus at all 6 of the day’s screenings we’ll be giving away a Mega Supreme Enormous Prize Pack that contains the following prizes from our sponsors:
1 Dragon Dynasty DVD of either PTU or Jackie Chan’s ROB-B-HOOD
1 Bonehouse Asia DVD of either LONG DREAM or NORIKO’S DINNER TABLE
1 TLA Releasing DVD of Pakistani horror film HELL’S GROUND
1 copy of Osamu Tezuka’s manga, DORORO vol. 1, from Vertical
1 six pack of Kirin Beer
1 bottle of Jinro Soju
1 year-long subscription to Giant Robot Magazine
1 Danger After Dark t-shirt from TLA Releasing
1 SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO t-shirt
1 New York Asian Film Festival t-shirt
And it will all come to you in a special edition New York Asian Film Festival messenger bag from Manhattan Portage. You can’t beat that with a stick. Well, you could, but it would be difficult. And strange.
Our screenings that day are:
12:00 noon – high-kicking, adrenalized Vietnamese flick, THE REBEL
2:10pm – Takashi Miike’s action fest, LIKE A DRAGON (which some of us like better than SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO)
4:20pm – the awe-inspiring glory of TOKYO GORE POLICE
6:30pm – Korea’s biggest blockbuster of the year, PUBLIC ENEMY RETURNS
9:00pm – the jaw-dropping documentary about stuntmen, ACTION BOYS, followed by a Q&A with director Jung Byung-Gil, producer Lee Ji-Youn, and actor/stuntman Kwak Jin-Seock
11:55pm – the sleaziest women-in-prison movie ever made, SASORI
And because THE REBEL, LIKE A DRAGON and TOKYO GORE POLICE are all matinee shows you can use your matinee pass to get in or purchase a Subway Matinee Six Pack so that if you bring friends you guys can go to these matinee shows for $8.25/ticket instead of $11.50/ticket.
