Cinema 1 - Daywatch
[NC16 - violence] (130 minutes)
A dazzling mix of state-of-the-art visual effects, amazing action sequences, and nail-biting horror set in contemporary Moscow, DAYWATCH revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of light and darkness -- the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides. This ancient war between the forces of Light and Darkness is reaching a tragic outcome. Each side has gained a powerful Great Other, who are headed for a clash, and Anton Gorodetsky is once again caught up in the midst of things. On one side is Anton's son, Yegor, who has joined the ranks of the Dark Others, while Anton's love interest Svetlana is the hope of the Light. But that's just the beginning of his troubles: Anton is on the run after having been accused of murder. Things are getting worse, and only the ancient Chalk of Fate can save the day. The problem is the magical Chalk has been lost hundreds of years ago...
Cinema 2 - The Drummer
[NC16 - some scenes of intimacy] (119 minutes)
THE DRUMMER is an original and stylistic cinematic feast of sight and sound. It is the first feature film to combine an engaging character-driven story with dramatic action and stunning art of Chinese Zen drumming. The compelling and emotional story follows Sid (Jaycee Chan), a reckless youth raised in a Hong Kong triad family, who flees to Taiwan upon enraging a mob boss. Hiding out in the mountains of Taiwan, he encounters and joins a group of Zen drummers whose mesmerizing art, rigorous physical training, and austere way of life eventually transform him into an extraordinary young man. Sid's independence from the triad life is profoundly challenged, however, when a twist of fate awaits him back home in Hong Kong and forces him to choose between loyalty to his family and his new found faith in himself. Also starring Tony Leung Ka-fai, Angelica Lee, Roy Cheung, Josie Ho and Kenneth Tsang. Directed by Kenneth Bi (RICE RHAPSODY).
