Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 199: Wed July 18

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!
