Join us for a 10th anniversary screening of the third film in the blockbuster Fast and Furious franchise. A bit of an outlier in the Fast and Furious series, Tokyo Drift follows a different set of characters from the previous films.
High school student Sean Boswell, who has a penchant for street racing, is sent to live with his father in Tokyo. He quickly gets involved with a local gang of racers, who practice a unique style of "drift racing." To fit in and prove himself, Sean must master the new style and defeat the leader of the gang.
Panel discussion to follow with director Justin Lin and other film personnel TBA.
