Dear KineJapanners,

The Foreign Correspondents' Club in Yurakucho will be screening the
buzzed-about Japan-Indonesia coproduction "Killers," by the team behind
"The Raid: Redemption" on Friday, January 24. Since FCCJ is a private club,
you must reserve a seat through Karen Severns: kjs30 at gol.com.


Followed by a Q&A session with director Timo Tjahjanto and stars Kazuki
Kitamura and Rin Takanashi

FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 6:30 pm*

*Please note early start time.


Japan-Indonesia, 2013  138 minutes

In English, Japanese and Indonesian with English subtitles

Marking a groundbreaking collaboration between Japan and Indonesia, the
highly anticipated “Killers” arrives at FCCJ fresh from its world premiere
at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The pan-Asian thriller was coproduced
by Nikkatsu Corp. (as part of its 100th anniversary celebration) and
Indonesian production house Guerilla Merah Films. Shot in Tokyo and
Jakarta, the film’s creative team boasts some of the hottest names in the
business: The producer is Yoshinori Chiba (“Cold Fish”) and the executive
producers include Gareth Evans (“The Raid: Redemption”). The directors are
the acclaimed Mo Brothers (Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel), who made a
name for themselves with “Macabre” (aka “Rumah Darah”).

“Killers” is a character-driven psychological thriller that delves with
dark intensity into the minds of two men with seemingly nothing in common:
Nomura (Kitamura), a self-obsessed serial killer residing in Tokyo, and
Bayu (Antara), a failing journalist and a struggling father in Jakarta.
Connected online, the men become rivals, and inexplicably start to feed off
each other. As their lives grow more uncontrollable, they each begin a
journey into a maze of violent self-discovery.

The film opens in Japan on February 1 and is scheduled for release around
the globe.
