[Hong Kong Film Festival] Gallants (打擂台 / Da Lui Toi)

LtoR: Interpreter, Producer Lam Ka Tung, Actor Law Wing Cheong

Gallants finally makes its way to Singapore not for a commercial run, but 2 special screenings during this year's edition of the Hong Kong Film Festival, where Hong Kong films are allowed to be screened in Cantonese, no thanks to some silly arcane rule.

As luck will have it, being the (invite only) opening film of the festival, Producer Lam Ka Tung and actor Law Wing Cheong were the special guests invited, and during today's session partook in a question and answer session with audiences in this full house screening.

Here's most of the proceedings (my phone hung so the first question answered by Ka Tung was not captured) in Cantonese and Mandarin. As luck will have it, the video's crap in a darkened hall, but the audio should serve you well:

You can read my review of the film here and my DVD review can be found here. Having attended its World Premiere at the Hong Kong International Film Festival last year, I've managed to capture the Stage Appearance and Q&A Session which was held right after the first screening.
