The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
Directed by Justin Lin
Critically acclaimed for its eye-popping, testosterone-filled driving sequences, the third installment in THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS series is considered its biggest departure in theme and style. Troubled American teen Sean (Lucas Black) comes to Tokyo to live with his father and avoid punishment back home for his thrill-seeking ways. Sean befriends Twinkie (Shad Moss), who introduces him to Tokyo’s underground street racing scene and the dangerous world of drifting. Sean’s life becomes even more complicated as he learns how to master drifting from Han (Sung Kang) and challenges rival Takashi (Brian Tee) for the racing crown as he falls for Takashi’s girlfriend, Neela (Nathalie Kelley).
Join us for a 10th-anniversary celebration screening and Lin’s return to CAAMFest, after showing BETTER LUCK TOMORROW in 2002, as part of A BRAVE NEW DIGITAL WORLD. Leonardo Nam joins Sung Kang and Jason Tobin, also appearing this year in PALI ROAD and JASMINE, respectively, will also be present.
