“Cardinal X” – Angie Wang Interview
Cindy J. Lee interviews Angie Wang, who directed, wrote and co-produced the drama film Cardinal X. Inspired by her own story, the film follows a Chinese American college student’s brief stint as an ecstasy dealer in the 80s. In this interview, Angie talks about how her non-profit organization GROW inspired her to share her story, her journey as a first-time filmmaker, and working with her wonderful cast (which includes Annie Q and Francesca Eastwood). Cardinal X screens twice at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival: April 30 @ Downtown Independent (9:15PM) & May 3 at CGV Cinemas 3 (4:30PM). For more info, go to festival.vconline.org.
