GOOK in theaters Aug 18th



GOOK takes place on April 29, 1992 - the day the LA riots started and the day the Rodney King verdicts were announced.  Eli and Daniel, two Korean American brothers played by Justin Chon and David So, own a struggling shoe store and have an unlikely friendship with Kamilla, a streetwise 11 year old African American girl played by new actress Simone Baker, ditches school to hang out with them.  Thus, creating their own "family."   Eli stresses about the store, and Daniel tries to have a good time. It's just another typical day at the store until the Rodney King verdict is read and riots break out. With the chaos moving towards them, the trio is forced to defend the store while contemplating the future of their own personal dreams and the true meaning of family.

With the ongoing discussions of race in America today, GOOK is that dialogue starter asking the question where are we now, even 25 years later.

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
