Co-presented with Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York

Hong Kong actor, writer, and director Stephen Chow’s audaciously anarchic comedies combine surreal sight gags, out-of-left-field non-sequiturs, extensive pop-culture quoting, and gravity-defying martial arts to sublimely silly effect. With his endlessly inventive, anything goes brand of humor, the reigning king of Hong Kong mo lei tau (“nonsense comedy”) yields unfiltered cinematic pleasure.
