Carradine film comes to Raindance

David Carradine
Carradine also starred in the TV series Kung Fu

One of the final on-screen performances from the late David Carradine will be shown at this year's Raindance Film Festival in London.

The Kill Bill actor will be seen in teen movie My Suicide.

Carradine, 72, was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room in June. A private autopsy concluded it was "some kind of accidental death".

The English premiere of Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience will close the festival on 11 October.

The drama follows the complicated life of a high-end call girl in Manhattan.

Acid house

Opening the festival for independent film is US hit Humpday, starring Joshua Leonard of The Blair Witch Project fame.

Writer and director Armando Iannucci and musician Tom Waits are among the members of this year's jury panel. The festival begins on 30 September.

This year's Raindance trailer has been banned to general audiences because it was deemed too violent - created by two competition winners from last year, it features a man falling off a building.

But it has received a 15 certificate and will be played throughout the festival.

The 17th Raindance festival will include 75 feature films and over 150 shorts.

UK films include the premiere of Jamie Thraves's The Cry of the Owl starring Julia Stiles and Paddy Considine and Colin, a homegrown horror movie made in Tooting, South London, for £45 by former Raindance student Marc Price.

The festival's documentary strand includes the world premiere of They Call It Acid, the story of acid house culture featuring interviews with DJs Carl Cox, Pete Tong and Paul Oakenfold.
