U.S. Premiere
Introduction and Q&A with director Yu Irie

Dignity is demolished and dreams are dashed in Roadside Fugitive, the third installment in Yu Irie's 8000 Miles series. Two years after Ikku (Ryusuke Komakine), Tom (Shingo Mizusawa) and Mighty (Eita Okuno), formed the rap group Sho-gung in their hometown of Fukuya, Saitama Prefecture, it has disbanded and the members are off on another series of misadventures. Irie's goofy, misfit protagonists are finely drawn characters who amuse and endear themselves. Their failure to realize their dreams, or even to hold down a proper job, comes to stand for the punctured ambitions of Japan's so-called NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) generation.

Japan. 2011. 110 min. HD Cam, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yu Irie. With Eita Okuno, Ryusuke Komakine, Shingo Mizusawa, Jun Miho.
