PhilaMOCA celebrates the release of the cult documentary-turned-memoir THE SEARCH FOR WENG WENG with Australian filmmaker Andrew Leavold and an exclusive screening of a new compilation of rare Weng Weng films!

Filmmaker Andrew Leavold will read excerpts from the his new book that details his 11-year search for the midget James Bond of the Philippines followed by a brand new 90 minute compilation of Weng Weng rarities:

«THE LOST FILMS OF WENG WENG — three of Weng Weng's Tagalog language films I’ve chopped down to their essentials and subtitled into English — all seen for the very first time outside the Philippines! You get the gold from — Stariray (Dolphy's 1981 gay disco actioner, in which a gruff-voiced Weng Weng as Chief of Operations teaches him kung fu); Da Best In Da West (another Weng Weng western also from 1981, this time as Dolphy's deputy Bronson!); and Legs...Katawan...Babae! (stars Hagibis, the Filipino Village People, in a delirious disco kung fu spy musical WESTERN [!!!] in which Weng Weng makes a cameo in the final blazing line-dancing number). I cannot WAIT to share this 90 minute party comp with you!»
