A brand new 4K restoration of TYPHOON CLUB, one Japan’s greatest films!

Shinji Somai’s beloved cult film TYPHOON CLUB (1985) is widely heralded as the director’s seminal feature and considered to be one of the greatest Japanese films ever made. 

Offering a caustic immersion into the lives of disaffected junior high students on the cusp of adulthood, TYPHOON CLUB features a lively cast of young talent including idol Youki Kudoh (THE CRAZY FAMILY, MYSTERY TRAIN) facing existential intrigues, budding sexuality, and rising social tensions in the days leading up to a typhoon’s arrival. Stranded in their schoolhouse as the storm settles in, the group undergoes an awakening as they dispel all insecurities, fear and desire under the swell of the tempest.
