The Duke Mitchell Club Triad Night
Venue: King's Cross Social Club, 2 Britannia Street, WC1X 9JE, 7pm
The Duke Mitchell team put on some of the best film club evenings in the capital. Here is their introduction to the latest one: The Duke's
of Asian Summer continues this July with a blistering,
never-before-seen action film: a title so brilliantly bonkers and yet so
unknown that it's sure to mesmerise the audience. 'Triad'
films have a huge place in Hong Kong cinema - just like their U.S.
counterparts, they focus on the inner-workings of this mysterious yet
alluring organisation, often showing the conflict between humane
individuals and a violent enviroment.
The 1989 example 'Burning
Ambition' is without doubt one of the best of the genre: an adult
storyline wrapped in ever-increasingly brutal fight pieces. When we say
this will make you rub your eyes in disbelief, we're not kidding!
But that's not all: The Duke will also present a Triad trailer trash, a
short slot exploring some crazy moves from Hong Kong, posters, music,
our always popular quiz and much, much more AND as always it's all FREE!
