Our next screening is a co-presentation with GFT, of the documentary The Search For Weng Weng. Director Andrew Leavold will be present to introduce the film and take part in a post-screening Q&A, hosted by journalist Graham Rae. Check out the trailer:

Australian video store owner-turned-guerrilla filmmaker Andrew Leavold stumbled across a dubbed copy of B-movie For Your Height Only, featuring a 3-foot tall James Bond–type character, played by Filipino actor Weng Weng. This hugely entertaining documentary follows Leavold’s ensuing two-decade obsession with Weng Weng, as he travels to Manila to try and track down the elusive former novelty star. Comprising of interviews with filmmakers and footage of Leavold’s adventures, The Search For Weng Weng is a surprisingly moving exploration of the life and career of the obscure actor.


Saturday 05/08 at GFT. Tickets are available here.
