MIAMI CONNECTION

USA | 1987 | 83 mins | R


The year is 1987. Cocaine dealing biker ninjas have tightened their grip on the Florida narcotics trade, but one multinational Tae Kwon Do-themed rock band who all live together and are also orphans have had enough. With the power of friendship, honesty, and loyalty at their side, Orlando’s #1 nightclub house band: DRAGON SOUND must protect their community from the deadly grip of the MIAMI CONNECTION and the very disgruntled band they put out of work.  

Directed by Woo-Sang Park (L.A. STREETFIGHTERS) and written/produced by Florida-based martial arts guru Grandmaster Y.K.Kim, MIAMI CONNECTION was rarely seen until DRAFTHOUSE FILMS restored it back in 2012. Fast forward to 2024 and Y.K. Kim’s passion project remains a massive cult sensation, blending crazy 80s action, thrilling fight sequences (ft. Kim’s actual students), and live musical performances from the one and only DRAGON SOUNDS! (BRANDON LIM) 

Join Black Belt Cinema for their staple annual Summer screening will be preceded with a live performance from DRAGON SOUNDS: Toronto’s premiere Tae Kwon Do-themed tribute band.
