Lost souls reach out for human connection amidst the glimmering night world of Hong Kong in Wong Kar-wai’s hallucinatory, neon-soaked nocturne.

Originally conceived as a segment of Chungking Express only to spin off on its own woozy axis, this hyper-cool head rush plays like the dark, moody flip side to Wong’s breakout feature as it charts the subtly interlacing fates of a handful of urban loners, including a coolly detached hitman (Leon Lai) looking to go straight, his business partner (Michelle Reis) who secretly yearns for him, and a mute delinquent (Takeshi Kaneshiro) who wreaks mischief by night.

Swinging between hardboiled noir and slapstick lunacy with giddy abandon, Fallen Angels is both a dizzying, dazzling city symphony and a poignant meditation on love, loss, and longing in a metropolis that never sleeps.

During this period of social distancing and lockdown due to Coronavirus we advise that you check directly with the organiser of this event that it is going ahead as publicised.

  • Wheelchair access

There is step-free access to the Union's main entrance. The Pyramid Theatre is located at the very bottom of the Union building, and accessible via both stairs and lifts. If you require any assistance reaching the theatre, please speak with a member of the Picture House or Leeds Union staff.

Once at the theatre, all regular seating is accessible via a series of shallow steps. A platform lift provides step free access wheelchair spaces, which can be booked online. Due to social distancing requirements, currently there is only one wheelchair space available, but we expect this to increase later in the summer as restrictions are eased.
