Unlike Mr Wang, Asian Film Archives have not asked me to publicize their events but since I possess an indefatigable public spirit/kindness that knows no bounds because of Sharity Elephant and his indomitable newsletters that flooded my retarded mind when I was a child, I highlight to you two events which you local film connoisseurs […]
