From the director that brought you Battle Royale! Kinji Fukasaku’s Black Lizard is a zany jewel heist film from 1968 featuring a spectacular female jewel thief and her battle of wits with Japan’s number one detective. The movie is in Japanese with English subtitles.
Please join us online on April 22 as we attempt our first-ever virtual movie night. We will be showing the film via TwoSeven, an online platform that allows users to watch videos together and to chat together at the same time. This is an experiment for us, so it may not be completely smooth, but we want to give it a try. We are hoping to do a brief intro to the movie and, if we can, a discussion after.
In order to join the movie, you will need to set up an account and download the plugin for Firefox or Chrome internet browsers (it doesn’t work with Safari or Internet Explorer). You will have the option to join in with video chat or audio…please choose whichever you are comfortable with. If we are able to have a discussion after the movie, it will be easier to do this with video chat.
You can sign up for an account by going to this website and clicking on “Log in” in the top right of the screen:

We will send out the link to join the movie on the day of the event, and we’ll also put it here in the description/comments. Please feel free to join in 15-20 minutes early if you are worried about getting everything to work.
