Presented in partnership between The Film Society of Lincoln Center and Subway Cinema with programming support from Japan Society, The New York Asian Film Festival will showcase over 50 feature films and 3 programs of short films from Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, USA and Vietnam. 2012 NYAFF will feature 20 films making their North American premieres and 1 more making its US debut.
Pang Ho-cheung’s Vulgaria will make it’s North American Premiere as the Opening Night Presentation. Chapman To plays a hapless movie producer trying to get his skin flick off the ground, and he’ll do anything to finance it, including auctioning off visitation rights to the daughter he adores, sucking up to gangsters named Brother Tyrannosaurus, and making not-so-sweet love to a mule. Hilariously offensive, The Hollywood Reporter calls it “laugh-out-loud” and “aptly titled.” Pang Ho-cheung will be at the screening.
Twenty films will make their North American premieres at NYAFF 2011. Those films are; All About My Wife; Asura; The Atrocity Exhibition; Bloody Fight In Iron-Rock Valley; Daed Bite; Din Tao: Leader Of The Parade; Doomday Book; East Meets West 2011; Guns And Roses; Henge; Let’s Make The Teacher Have A Miscarriage-Club; Love Strikes!; Make Up; Nasi Lemak 2.0; Pang Ho-Cheung’s First Attempt; Potechi (Chips); Red Vacance, Black Wedding; Scabbard Samurai; Secret Love; Vulgaria; and Zero Man Vs. The Half Virgin. One film will be making its US premiere - Monsters Club.
