Tokyo Tribe in cinemas this May

Kevin-Eureka

Tokyo Tribe will be screening in select cinemas from 22nd May, see below for listings, we'll update this page with more lsiting as they are confirmed. 

Just when you thought Sion Sono’s unique brand of subversive cinema couldn’t get any more out there, he’s back to explode expectations once again as he ventures even further into uncharted cinematic territory with an ingenious hybrid of Yakuza gang-action and hip-hop musical. 

In a futuristic, alternate-world Tokyo, the city is made up of ghetto slums and nightclub playgrounds where gangs of wayward youths rule the streets. The city is carved up into hoods, and the crossing of territorial lines quickly leads to riots and rumbles. On the turf ruled by the savage yakuza Big Buppa, the simmering tension is about to boil over into all-out war. Who will emerge victorious? Territory, friendship, pride, love... Everything is put on the line in a desperate struggle for supremacy!

Based on a popular Manga series (Tokyo Tribe 2 by Santa Inoue) and told almost entirely in rap verse (by some of Japan’s leading hip-hop talent), Tokyo Tribe has to be seen to be believed. The aggressive assault of the beats and rhymes wreaks havoc as a massive ensemble cast shocks, excites, and incites an unparalleled sonic war!
