Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter

Directed by Yasuharu Hasebe

Made by the Nikkatsu studio and directed by Yasuharu Hasebe, Sex Hunter is one of the best entries in the Stray Cat Rock series of girl-gang exploitation films that hit Japanese cinemas in 1970.

In this contribution, the Alleycats, an all-girl gang, are in conflict with the male led Eagles. As with the best exploitation cinema the appeal of on-screen fighting, scenes in go-go bars, including an appearance by the popular pop band Golden Half, are present alongside a more thoughtful exploration of race, ethnicity and nationality.

Screening as part of Japan 2020: Over 100 years of Japanese Cinema, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
