“No matter how far, run for all you're worth. RUN.”

A long-unavailable underground hit that anticipated The Hunger Games novels by eight years, veteran director Fukasaku's epically violent, still-controversial and deeply influential genre masterpiece takes place in a dystopian alternate universe.

In the near future, the economy has collapsed, unemployment has soared and juvenile crime has exploded. Fearful of its nation's youth, the Japanese government passes The BR Law: Each year, a 9th grade class is sent to a remote island where they will be locked into exploding neck collars, given a random weapon, and forced to hunt and kill each other until there is only one survivor left.

Battle Royale follows one such class, with an ice-cold performance from Takeski Kitano as the group's teacher.

Please note: £10 ticket includes screening only & film will be silent with Wi-Fi headphones provided.
