SNEAK PEEK: A NEW DARK COMEDY BY H.P. MENDOZA
Directed by H.P. Mendoza
VENUE IS 21+ ONLY.
Filmmakers in attendance.
Bay Area multi-hyphenate H.P. Mendoza (COLMA: THE MUSICAL, YES, WE’RE OPEN, I AM A GHOST) returns with his third directorial feature film! This special sneak peek, which will be attended by Mendoza and cast, is a “home for the holidays” dark comedy where a Filipino American family plots to kill an abusive member. Expect the usual when it comes to an H.P. Mendoza film — laugh-out loud comedy, exploration of the human condition, Hitchockian camera tricks that complement the San Francisco environs, and pushing the conventions of genre cinema by infusing it with a unique and informed Asian Pacific American perspective. You won’t want to miss this advance screening before its official release!
Co-presented with Community Partner: This Filipino American Life
