If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that the Japanese love their biomechanical women! Subway Cinema (creator of the NY Asian Film Festival) is also aware of this fact and strives to bring these borderline psychotic movies to the States in the spirit of cultural exchange. To that end, May 18th sees the coming of RoboGeisha!
From the demented imaginations of director Noboru Iguchi (Machine Girl) and special effects savant Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police) comes this brain-blasting vision of the future which defies description, sanity, and good taste. The evil Kageno Corporation wants to return Japan to more traditional values and the weapons in their arsenal include a massive Geisha Army, two supernatural bikini-clad assassins, and a plan to detonate a nuclear device on Mt. Fuji. But that’s not enough! They’re so evil that they also recruit two sisters and turn them into….RoboGeisha! However, RoboGeisha have uncontrollable hearts, and it’s not long before one of them begins to wonder if there’s more to life than being a kimono-clad, robotic killing machine. The screen swarms with nutso concepts like acid breast milk, butt swords, and fried shrimp weapons while peekaboo sexiness and goofy ultra-violence make this the one cult movie to rule them all.
Details of the screening follow:
Witness the dawn of RoboGeisha at a special launch for this summer’s New York Asian Film Festival. Line-up titles will be revealed, and there will even be a massive party after the screening! Prizes!

Post-screening Skype Q&A with director Noboru Iguchi and special effects genius Yoshihiro Nishimura!
