Screening, Tokyo Drifter (東京流れ者, Tōkyō nagaremono) (1966)

Tokyo Drifter (東京流れ者, Tōkyō nagaremono) (1966)


Directed by Seijun Suzuki


After yakuza boss Kurata (Ryuji Kita) dissolves his own criminal empire, a rival kingpin offers a position to Kurata’s top operative, Tetsuya “Phoenix Tetsu” Hondo (Tetsuya Watari). When the fiercely loyal Tetsu declines, Otsuka taps unstoppable Tatsuzo the “Viper” (Tamio Kawaji), a ruthless gun-for-hire, to assassinate him. As the Viper trails his target through the countryside, the agile Phoenix Tetsu grows concerned that one of his former associates has betrayed him.


Prior to the screening, guest speaker Dr. Joel Neville Anderson, Professor of Cinema Studies and Film at Purchase College, SUNY, will present an historical introduction and lead a post-screening discussion. Snacks and beverages will be served free-of-charge, but donations are highly encouraged.
