ROAR (1981) - MAY 13


Roar (1981)

An unprecedented and wholly unpredictable action-adventure, ROAR follows wildlife preservationist Hank ( Noel Marshall), who lives harmoniously alongside a menagerie of untamed animals, including cheetahs, elephants, lions and tigers on a preservation in the African plains. When his wife and children (Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith) arrive for a visit, a long-brewing battle for dominance between two lions erupts and threatens their very lives.

THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY - APRIL 22



The Duke of Burgundy


Day after day, Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen) and Evelyn (Chiara D'Anna) act out a simple yet provocative ritual that ends with Evelyn's punishment and pleasure. As Cynthia yearns for a more conventional relationship, Evelyn's obsession with erotica quickly becomes an addiction that may push the relationship to a breaking point.
Dripping with eroticism and dread, The Duke of Burgundy is a darkly decadent melodrama from Peter Strickland, the award winning writer and director of Berberian Sound Studio.

Nao Ohmori (star of Takashi Miike's Ichi the Killer) plays Takafumi Katayama, a mild mannered father who escapes the pressures of daily life by joining a mysterious S&M club, where the so-called Queens visit clients in real-life settings. While at first the rough treatment and humiliation he receives from leather-clad women in cafés and restaurants is enjoyable, Takafumi soon realizes that he's opened a door that cannot be closed. Unable to end his relationship with the club, he finds himself pursued by a gang of ruthless dominatrices, each with a very unique talent. Takafumi must either find a way to turn the tables, or walk even further down this dark yet sexy path.
