WORLD PREMIERE OF PANG HO-CHEUNG FIRST SHORT FILMS IN UDINE !
Hong Kong director
Pang Ho-cheung 彭浩翔,who shot the trailer of the 10th
Far East Film Festival(starring Sunny Lau) was invited in Udine - for the fourth time I think - between the 19th and the 23th of April 2008
Pang Ho-cheungHis last feature, the omibus movie
破事兒 was screened (Among the 7 short stories, 5 of them were adapted from Pang Ho-cheung's own novel), but the big surprise was the very first public and worldwide premiere of his two first shorts movies, made in the mid-80's when he was 12 years old !
Pang Ho-cheung and Peter Kam
The first one,
The Robbery,is a 5-minute "homemade" short
starring Pang Ho-cheung himself and his brother as the (masked) robbers, Pang Ho-cheung's mother as the bank employee, and Pang Ho-cheung's brothers (again) as the cop.
The second one,
The First Adventures of the Gangsta Bears(20 minutes)
,his a tribute to Chow Yun-fat's heroic bloodhed movies like
A Better Tomorrow 英雄本色and
Tragic Hero 英雄好漢, where Pang Ho-cheung used clips from - VHS of - those movies and included them in the short, in a "Sweded" way (If you saw Michel Gondry's
Be Kind Rewind,you know exactly what I'm talking about).
The First Adventures of the Gangsta Bears
(Pang Ho-cheung, at the right)
The most memorable parts of this movie were probably when the charaters are moving slowly during an action scene to simulate a slow motion effect or singing the soundtrack during a chase scene because they don't have the budget to make one.
Pang Ho-cheung was in Udine with
Sunny Lau, but also
Subi Liang 梁啟緣(producer of
Trivial Mattersand several other Pang Ho-cheung movies since
Beyond Our Ken 公主復仇記) and
金培達(music composer of several Pang Ho-cheung movies since
You Shoot, I Shoot 買兇拍人, including the award-winning
Isabella 伊莎貝拉 + music supervisor of
Trivial Matters, and music composer of
The Warlords 投名狀and the next Derek Yee 爾冬陞 movie,
新宿事件). Enjoy the pictures (videos will come soon).
