Eastern Promises: Kinji Fukusaku’s BATTLE ROYALE

Could you kill your best friend? “42 9th graders are sent to a deserted island. They are given a map, food, and various weapons. An explosive collar is fitted around their neck. If they break a rule, the collar explodes. Their mission: kill each other and be the last one standing. The last survivor is allowed to leave the island. If there is more than one survivor, the collars explode and kill them all.”

About Eastern Promises:
Here’s the promise: From art-house auteurs, to the mavericks, cult and old, bullet ballets and somber samurais, we will indulge you with the highs and lows of Asian cinema. We will expose you to hard core vengeance, the lower depths of horror, and won’t shy away from the pink delicacies of erotica. We give to you our Eastern Promises.
