<i>School on Fire</i> UNCUT at Broad Street Ministry

Medium Rare Cinema presents a rare uncut screening of Ringo Lam’s School on Fire (1988) at the Broad Street Ministry on Thursday, April 12 at 7:00 PM.

From the release:
From the director of City on Fire, Full Contact, and Prison on Fire comes Ringo Lam’s School on Fire, screened for the first time in its uncut version.  This absolutely harrowing dramatic thriller has police trying to topple a crime boss amidst terrorized students of a local school.  The combination of gangs and teens, especially the infiltration of the Chinese triads into schools, caused the Hong Kong censors, local politicians, and even the film’s producerst to cut more than six minutes of the film.  This composite version restores the 36 cuts forced on Lam.  It also features entirely re-translated subtitles.
