Trashy asian films are hilarious


The Freer Sackler has been doing some very fun programming lately! Check out this Asia Trash! film series:
Visitors who value the Freer's commitment to presenting the finest examples of Asian art and culture may be surprised by our decision to present a film series called Asia Trash. They may be even more surprised to learn that trash cinema is, to many people, an important art form, with its own pantheon of great artists pondering deep questions, such as: what happens when zombies get hold of machine guns? Could toxic chemicals dumped in the Han River give birth to a giant slimy monster bent on gorging itself on the population of Seoul? Are Thai cowboys as good at singing as they are at gunslinging? Is the force of the blood spurting from a man's severed legs sufficient to propel him around the room like a rapidly deflating balloon? As Oliver Stone once said, "One of the joys of going to the movies was that it was trashy, and we should never lose that." This summer, we're doing our best to make sure that the art of trash cinema continues to thrive.
Hilarious! Go here for more info.
