The Search For Weng Weng (filmmaker in person!)

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

4:30pm

All the way from Down Under, filmmaker Andrew Leavold in person! The Guinness Book of World Records lists Ernesto de la Cruz as the “shortest adult actor in a leading role”, but that doesn’t come close to capturing the real heart and soul of his alter ego Weng Weng: the toast of the Filipino low-budget action film community, karaoke partner of Imelda Marcos and the subject of many a viral video. Coming in at 2’9”, Weng Weng starred in such time-honored James Bond spoofs as For Y’ur Height Only and The Impossible Kid — but after his early death in 1992, nearly every detail about his life remained a mystery to the outside world. After years of obsessive research and filming, Australian guerrilla director Andrew Leavold has finally amassed the definitive portrait of this cup-sized dynamo. All hail Agent 00!

Dir. Andrew Leavold, 2014, DCP, 92 min.
