CINE-SIDESHOW presents MIAMI CONNECTION
Witness a visual feast that will warm your soul! For the first time on our shores, the one, the only MIAMI CONNECTION is here for a special, premiere screening!
MIAMI CONNECTION, the brainchild of Master Y.K Kim, chronicles Karate Kicking synth-rock act Dragon Sound, made up of five University of Central Florida students. They are out to clean up the streets (or maybe just stop people from stealing their gigs) and they are not afraid to break heads and hunt down long lost fathers to do it!
Cine-Sideshow are joining forces with The Shadow Electric to unleash the high kicks and groovy synth sounds of MIAMI CONNECTION for one very special Australian premiere screening! Cine-Sideshow’s requisite pre-show madness of ephemeral clips, trailers and absurdist non-sequiturs will precede the screening!
MIAMI CONNECTION is quickly becoming a bona fide film geek phenomena. Filmed in 1987 and then taking 22 years to discover its place in history. It was refused by every distributor at the time of its production, understandably so considering the film is an appallingly constructed work of 80s action.
Last year the film was re-discovered via an Ebay blind bid made by Alamo Drafthouse programmer Zack Carlson. After securing the 35mm print, Carlson played the film to an an audience in Austin, TX and the rest, as they say, is skull splitting ninjitsu history!
After a slew of screenings around the world, including Fantastic Fest and The New York Asian Film festival, Y.K Kim’s vision of the power of martial arts is here in a brand new black belt busting HD transfer. Wipe the flesh away from your third eye and prepare to see the greatest example of film making tenacity this side of the Bayou.So take the Public Holiday by the horns and head on down.
Tickets are a measly $10 for an evening of Fun, Fighting and Furious Action! Now is our time! We All Stand together – Against the Ninja!
“ This movie has no interest in being 'good' in that drab, competent Hollywood way. Instead, it's going all in on awesome, and on its way, there it kicks every ass it meets. ”
