No Borders, No Limits: 1960s Nikkatsu Action Cinema
Presented for the first time in the US, this series of super-stylized action films celebrates the golden age of Japan’s oldest and boldest film studio, Nikkatsu. Influenced by both Hollywood and the French New Wave, these films reflect the Westernization that swept away old values, while teaching an entire generation a new Japanese meaning of cool. All films are presented on 35mm film with new digital subtitles. Series organized by Outcast Cinema with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Thu, Apr 10, 7:30 pm
With rival gang members in pursuit, a cool-headed killer (iconic Seijun Suzuki favorite Joe Shishido) is desperate to get out of town after pulling off a hit with his partner. The film is brilliantly stylish and noir-inspired—a true undiscovered classic. Its lean direction and wind-swept, empty locales play perfectly with Shishido's panache and tough-guy cool. (1967, 84 min.)
