Immediately gaining a cult status upon its release in the year 2000 and smashing its way into popular culture, Battle Royale tells the story of what happens when a high school class is set loose on an island and told only one will leave alive.
Presented here in a double-bill screening alongside another film which defined Extreme Asian Cinema in the 21st Century - the 2003 film from director Park Chan-Wook, Oldboy.
