Rutger Hauer Remembered
Double Feature!
THE BLOOD OF HEROES / BLIND FURY
Co-presented by Beyond Fest!
35 mm!

THE BLOOD OF HEROES
1989, 90 min, Dir: David Webb Peoples

The first directorial effort from veteran screenwriter David Webb Peoples (BLADE RUNNER) is one of the most adrenaline fueled, fast paced action films of all time. THE BLOOD OF HEROES is set in a post-apocalyptic future, in which a hyper-violent version of football—played with dog skulls instead of pigskin—dominates popular culture. Rutger Hauer stars as a disgraced former player, who embarks on a daring comeback with his teammates played by Joan Chen (who amazingly supplied many of her own stunts), Vincent D'Onofrio and Delroy Lindo. Thirty years after its original release, the film has become a cult classic, as well as the inspiration for the real sport “Jugger,” which is now played across the world. “No one carries the dog boy!”

BLIND FURY
1989, Sony Repertory, 86 min, Dir: Phillip Noyce

A loose adaptation of the beloved ZATOICHI series, BLIND FURY stars Rutger Hauer as Nick Parker, a blind samurai sword-wielding Vietnam vet, who slices and dices his way through the Reno-based criminal organization that kidnapped his old army buddy (played by Terry O'Quinn). The mob boss (Noble Willingham) soon finds that he has messed with the wrong guy, as neither swarms of henchman nor hired assassins are any match for Nick’s skill with the blade.
