LETTER FROM MASANJIA - Examines a Devastating Tale of Human Rights Violations in Current Day China - Release Information



Coming off of a wildly successful festival run and excellent enthusiastic early critical reviews – Leon Lee’s “Letter From Masanjia” has been hailed by audiences and critics alike as one of the best docs of 2018, taking home Audience Award for Documentary Feature at the 2018 Asian American International Film Festival and it was nominated as a top 20 audience favorite at this year’s Hot Docs Film Festival. A devastating tale of human rights violations in current day China with corporate giants across the globe receiving prisoner labor efforts for Halloween decorations, asking no questions in a price for pennies on the dollar. This is the tale of one political prisoner's desperate plea to alert the world to horrors most of society sweeps under the carpet.

Parade Deck Films will open “Letter From Masanjia” theatrically in New York and Los Angeles beginning on September 14th, 2018 and will expand into additional markets in the following weeks. Later this year Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, will bring the film to audiences across North America on VOD/Digital platforms on December 4th.

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.
