CRIME: Hong Kong Style

With a city of 7.2 million people, you’re bound to get a few bad apples. We’re presenting an explosive new season of crime films from Hong Kong between February – April.

From noir-tinged thrillers, to tales of hardnosed gangsters, to entertainingly comic capers, CRIME: Hong Kong Style offers stone cold classics (Infernal Affairs, Election), cult movies (Police Story, As Tears Go By), forgotten
 gems (Too Many Ways to be No. 1, Portland Street Blues) and, with premieres of Dante Lam’s That Demon Within and the legendary Ringo Lam’s Wild City, the latest releases from some of the world’s most revered and stylish directors.

Join us to celebrate some of the greatest crime films ever made.
