NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL - Asian Films Are Go!!! (June 16 - July 1)

Visit our archive for previous editions of the NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL:
and 2005.

November 9 - 16, 2006
Nov. 6 - Dec. 6
They're back. The Celestial's glorious restorations of the classic Shaw Brothers movies hit the screen at BAM. One sense-shattering eruption of martial glory after another:
NEW ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN (1971, 94 minutes)
Monday, Nov. 20 @ 6:50pm, 9:15pm
David Chiang and Chang Cheh team up to re-tell the much-told legend of the one-armed swordsman.
LEGENDARY WEAPONS OF CHINA (1982, 101 minutes)
Tue, Nov 21 @ 6:50pm, 9:15pm
Lau Kar-leung has a couple of master accomplishments under his belt, and this is one of them. His most fantastically fantastical flick, and a showcase for a number of fighters.
THE FIVE VENOMS (1978, 97 minutes)
Mon, Nov 27 @ 6:50pm, 9:15pm
Chang Cheh's masked martial movie is totally iconic and while it's not as much fun as CRIPPLED AVENGERS it's still a must-see.
DIRTY HO (1979, 100 minutes)
Tue, Nov 28 @ 6:50pm, 9:15pm
Lau Kar-leung's best, most well-considered movie. The drama works. The action doesn't overwhelm the story. The stakes are high.
CLANS OF INTRIGUE (1977, Hong Kong, 99 minutes)
Tuesday, December 5 @ 6:50pm, 9:15pm
Chor Yuen made a lot of good movies, but few are as good as CLANS where a gay blade lounges on his pimped-out pleasure barge until a grotty murder case brings him back in from the cold and he has to go up against lesbian death goddesses and transsexual ninjas. Starts happy and pretty, ends bleak and bloody.
Wednesday, December 6 @ 6:50pm, 9:30pm
A terrorist attack from Chang Cheh, marinated in machismo and simmered in blood. Chen Kuan-tai is the star of this SCARFACE riff, set in 1930's Shanghai. You know where things are going until 2/3's of the way through the bloodshed gets downright apocalyptic and this becomes a working class manifesto on bringing pain to the upper crust. And don't miss David Chiang's brilliant supporting turn as the natty, death-seeking gang boss.

Cinema Village
Starts 11/24
The best gay, samurai, motorcycle road movie musical from Japan that you've never seen. If you want your mind blown, this remake of a 1958 Japanese classic is the film for you. Featuring songs like "Born to be Gay!", massive drug use, hallucinations and more!

The ImaginAsian
SHINOBI (Japan, 2005, 101 minutes)
Starts November 17! One week only!
Behold! The ninja movie to end all ninja movies. A popular flick at this year's New York Asian Film Festival, the "Romeo and Juliet" of ninja blowouts hits the big screen with all kinds of freaky weapons flying out of its fingertips.

Japan Society
Nov. 10 - 19, 2006
Japanese movies about schoolgirls gone wild. There's classics like SAILOR SUIT AND MACHINE GUN as well as lower key efforts like EXCHANGE STUDENTS and THE LITTLE GIRL WHO CONQUERED TIME. It's just the kind of nutty programming that the Japan Society should be bringing over more often.
Don't miss the Friday night screening of W'S TRAGEDY, one of the most over-heated, sinfully delicious backstage dramas ever seared onto celluloid. Like SUNSET BOULEVARD, only for teenagers.
Full schedule:

This is really, really simple, but - as a service to those who like their hand held - we're gonna spell it out...
