The hippest artists in Bangkok converge in New York on July 28th and 29th for Ramakien: A Rak Opera, a radical and lusty re-telling of the timeless Thai masterpiece The Ramayana.

THE MAD FOX (Japan, 1962, 109 minutes)
Friday, June 16 @ 8:00pm
Saturday, June 17 @ 4:45pm
I've never even heard of this Uchida Tomu film, but the description's got me curious:
"It's a crazy tale about a court fortune teller driven mad by a murder, who ends up marrying his slain lover's dead ringer, a fox in human form (got that?), incorporates animation, kabuki and butoh, colorist experiments, collapsing sets, animal masks, revolving stages, and scroll compositions..."

Museum of the Moving Image
DEATH TRANCE (Japan, 2005, 90 minutes)
Sunday, June 18 @ 2pm
Tak Sakaguchi (VERSUS), and Kentaro Seagal (Steven Seagal's son) star in this wild Japanese samurai flick with wall-to-wall action and medieval bazookas. Directed by Ryuhei Kitamura's action director this is a bunch of dumb, high kicking fun.
