Search for WENG WENG: Vernon book launch

  • Record City 3127 30th Avenue Vernon, BC, V1T 2C2 Canada (map)

TO ALL THE ODD-BALL-MOVIE LOVERS OUT THERE - Join us at Record City for an event that will mark you year! My film-maker friend from Australia, Andrew Leavold, is making a special visit to Vernon as he passes along with his book-launch tour of the biography he's recently published telling of his journey creating the documentary ‘The Search for Weng Weng.' I won't go into much detail, but let it be enough to catch your attention that his mission was to locate a long lost Filipino acting star, who made a grand series of mock-James Bond type movies, performing all of his own bad-ass stunts. The catch is that he stood only about 2’9'' from the ground. This movie was a brilliant capture of Weng Weng’s incredible life story with an edge to humble the viewer.
Leavold’s book dives further into wilder depths of his seven year journey through the Philippines; travelling from Imelda Marcos’s birthday party to the poorest sumps of Manila and into the very heart of Filipino culture and history. It will be the adventure of a life time, told by the adventurer himself. He intelligent as he is odd, and is guaranteed to put on a great show!
