Asian women filmmakers Narissa Lee and Kar Yin Tham (CAAM’s Director of Education) talk to the men behind Awesome Asian Bad Guys: filmmakers Stephen Dypiango and Patrick Epino, and actor Dante Basco. Listen to their conversation above, recorded just before the film’s world premiere at CAAMFest 2014 in March.
Described as “a screwball comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously, Awesome Asian Bad Guys is directors Patrick Epino and Stephen Dypiangco’s homage to the actors who played iconic, yet paradoxically nameless Asian villains on the silver screen. This tribute has Al Leong, Yuji Okumoto and George Cheung playing themselves in an almost life-imitating-art caricaturization of their most recognizable roles.”
The film screens at CAAMFest San Jose Saturday, September 6 at 8:30 pm.
CAAM is also giving away two Awesome Asian Bad Guys t-shirts (available in men’s and women’s cuts) and a poster! “Like” our CAAMFest Facebook page and in the post comments section tell us who your favorite bad guy is. The winner will be randomly selected!
