Fireworks (Hana-Bi)
Directed by Kitano Takeshi (1998, 35 mm, 103 min.)

Hana-bi is the winner of Grand Prize at the Venice Film Festival in 1997, and features Takeshi Kitano as an ex-cop, whose guilt toward his deceased partner drives him to launch a ruthless revenge at yakuza. Hana-bi juxtaposes minimalist aesthetics with extreme violence, and is one of the most accomplished works by Kitano.
