Viva Video Presents THROW DOWN

(NR) Hong Kong/China – 1 hr 35 min  
2004 · d. Johnnie To – with subtitles
Starring Louis Koo, Aaron Kwok, Cherrie Ying

In the neon-lit Hong Kong underworld, a washed-up judo champ, a hotshot fighter, and a would-be chanteuse must rely on each other as they strive for redemption. Eclectic, virtuosic, cult-favorite director Johnnie To spins this crime tale—or is it a sports drama?—into a poignant ode to friendship and resilience, staged with the grace of a classic musical.

This screening will be introduced by John Crodian of Viva Video. Stick around for a post-film conversation!
