Film Friday: Hana-bi (Fireworks)

Friday, September 18th at 8.00pm - FREE

We resume our Japanese movie month with Hana-bi, an award-winning film by Takeshi Kitano that follows a policeman who borrows money from the Japanese mafia -- the Yakuza -- to pay for his leukemia-stricken wife. Meanwhile, the main character's partner, after a terrible injury, begins to create works of surrealist art while confined from his wheelchair.

A powerful and strong film that just might be unlike anything you've seen.
