Directed by Quentin Tarantino

United States 2003 111 mins. In English

A revenge tale with a female protagonist, blood-gushing fight scenes, animation interwoven with live action, the song “Shura No Hana” (“Flower of Carnage”)…. Tarantino pays homage to the original LADY SNOWBLOOD (also screening) by transplanting much of the film’s narrative and aesthetics into his modern story of The Bride (Uma Thurman). Formerly a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, The Bride tries to leave the assassin’s life behind when she becomes pregnant with the child of her ruthless boss, Bill (David Carradine). But Bill and his minions (Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Daryl Hannah, and Michael Madsen) shoot her down, killing her baby and leaving her in a coma that lasts four years. When she wakes, The Bride embarks on her own quest for revenge.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
