White on Rice and Taxidermia Finally Come To Theaters

Two great trailers went up on the Apple site today promoting two strong releases for later this summer.

First up, there's our first theatrical release for Tiger Industry Films - White on Rice. Directed by David Boyle and starring Hiroshi Watanabe, Nae, Mio Takada, Lynn Chen and James Kyson Lee, the movie is set to hit select US theaters in late summer, early fall. But, if you live in NYC, you can come check it out next weekend at the New York Asian American International Film Festival. We're showing at the SVA Theater on Saturday, July 25th, at 4:45 PM. Tickets can be purchased here. Don't miss it!

Secondly, after a long and sordid history involving a Cannes Premiere and a series of distributors, György Pálfi's ingenious Taxidermia is finally going hit US screens on August 14th courtesy of Regent Releasing. The film is still easily one the most unique and beautiful pieces of work that I've seen in the last five years and, though it requires quite a strong stomach, it should be witnessed by all. Congrats to Regent for making such an astute pickup.
