Let Sion Sono take you on a tour of Tokyo's underbelly for a night of turf wars & rap battles.
Near-future Tokyo has split into 23 rival tribes that struggle for control against a backdrop of violence, sex and corruption. Tensions between two of the tribes escalate when Mera, leader of the Bukuro Wu-Ronz tribe, kills rival Tera from the Musashino Saru tribe, and then sets his sights on eliminating Tera's successor over a personal vendetta. When the High Priest's daughter goes missing, ruthless crime lord Buppa enters the fray, and Tokyo becomes a battlefield as an all-out turf war erupts between the tribes.
Outrageous, crude, weirdly comic and never predictable, TOKYO TRIBE is yet another solid punch-to-the-gut by wild-child director Sion Sono (WHY DON'T YOU PLAY IN HELL?), as he fights to reclaim the yakuza genre, martial arts fight scenes and dirty dystopian futures from Western cinema. Oh, and did we mention it's all executed in the style of a hip hop musical?
