Gentian hosts the screening of the 1987 indie martial arts film Miami Connection
Gentian Theater (Facebook | website) held on Friday, May 5th.
The film, which was released in 1987, was directed by Grandmaster YK Kim (founder of the Martial Arts World franchise) and is a black belt 9 USA since.
Shot in Orlando and featuring many recognizable local landmarks, the film centers on the botched, pathetic falls of multinational martial arts rock band Dragon Sound, who somehow end up fighting crime, with real fists, not legal ones, and against crack down on Florida’s illegal drug trade. While Shakespeare isn’t, the film happened to be showing at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas in 2009, where word quickly spread about how funny the film was and built enough support to re-release it.
gazers called it, “So bad, it’s important.”
Ticket holders are eligible to win one of two copies of Dragon Sound’s out of print 7″ record featuring “Friends” and “Against The Ninja”.
