Old School Kung Fu Fest!!! April 19-21!
Right on! For my tri-state area people, this April 19-21 @ the Anthology Film Archives, the fine fellas behind, and in front of, the NYAFF are bringing Old School HK action back to the big screen. This weekend of kung-fu stylings is in memoriam for one of the NYAFF organizers, Daniel Anderson Craft, who passed away a few months ago, and someone I only got to know for a short while.
This is a be-there-or-be-square kinda weekend in NYC. Tell your significant other that you can't hang that weekend, call in sick to work, and drop the kids off at your in-laws. The kids need to see their Nan-Nan and Pop-Pop, whom you've been neglecting to visit because they are old and you don't have time for their nonsense. I'm going to be there, and if I can make it there (I already put in for a vacation day at work), so can you. And if I have yet to whet your appetite, then take a gander at the film line-up......RIGHT HERE!
Hong Kong Cinema is like sex and pizza. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.
I have had a love affair with Hong Kong Cinema for over 17 years now. I have accumulated over 3,000 HK films and many other HK film related items throughout those 17 years. With this blog, I am hoping to share my collection with other HK cinema fans. With my writing, I am trying to keep things light,fun,and tongue in cheek in hopes that my love affair with HK cinema continues and remains as fresh as the days I first fell in love with it. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
