Screening Announcement | PPH presents Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

Ghost Dog 1

For the fourth instalment of our ongoing Permanent Plastic Helmet presents… series of events, we are delighted to announce a 35mm screening of Jim Jarmusch’s extraordinary, unclassifiable classic Ghost Dog: The Way of the SamuraiThe time and place? 20:50 on Thursday 21 March 2013 at south London’s lovely Clapham Picturehouse.

This surreal tale stars Forest Whitaker as a perma-cool, self-taught samurai hitman who finds himself targeted for death by the mafia. Blessed with stunning cinematography from Robby Müller (Paris, Texas) and a brilliant original score from Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA (who also cameos), it’s an intoxicating, unique and strangely moving fusion of gangsta, gangster and ninja worlds

Come to the bar before the screening for drinks and free food, all soundtracked by classic 90s hip-hop and soul. Before the film commences, there will be a free prize draw and an introduction by PPH editor and film critic (Sight & Sound, Little White Lies) Ashley Clark.

You can, and absolutely should, buy tickets here. To get yourself in the mood, watch the trailer below:
