This 3-part series is a celebration of female action heroes like Birte Tove, Ann-Margret , Roberta Collins and Nancy Kwan who in the 60s and 70s kicked butt and destroyed the bad guys with judo chops and leg kicks in grindhouse action movies like “BAMBOO HOUSE OF DOLLS” (15.02), “WONDER WOMEN” (29.03), and “KITTEN WITH A WHIP” (26.04) All three films are screened on authentic 35mm celluloid and popcorn will be sold.

19.30 = BAMBOO HOUSE OF DOLLS, 1973, dir. by Chih-Hung Kuei, 110 min., 35mm with English dialogue / BAMBOO HOUSE OF DOLLS is directed by Chih-Hung Kuei, produced by The Shaw Brothers, and starring Danish actress Birte Tove! This rare gem is packed with flagrant nudity, sadism and (non-explicit) sexual acts. All of this would have been scandalous and career-ending for any of SB’s famous leading ladies, so they had to bring in a foreign actress - Ms. Tove. She renders a performance far more gritty and gutsy than anything she ever did in a Danish film. Action-packed and ultra lurid from start to finish – pure Asian grindhouse with a Danish connection twist. Your popcorn is waiting!
