Golden Scene picks up Vulgaria
Hong Kong’s Golden Scene is handling international sales on Pang Ho Cheung’s Vulgaria, which is screening in this year’s HKIFF.
Starring Chapman To, Ronald Cheng and Fiona Sit, the film is a black comedy about the Hong Kong film industry and the efforts of a struggling producer to make his new film. It was produced by Sun Entertainment and Pang’s Making Film Production.
Golden Scene, a Hong Kong distributor which has moved into production and sales in recent years, is ramping up its sales slate with three other projects from Hong Kong directors.
The company is also selling Calvin Poon’s Shadows Of Love, produced by Stanley Kwan and starring Cecilia Cheung and Kwon Sang Woo. Cheung plays a woman who is asked to impersonate the daughter of a CEO involved in an inheritance battle.
Cheung also makes a special appearance in Jingle Ma’s Speed Angels, another recent addition to Golden Scene’s slate. Tang Wei and Rene Liu head the cast of the action drama about female car racers. The film was produced by a consortium of mainland Chinese companies including Star Sky and Enlight Pictures.
Golden Scene is also selling Carol Lai’s The Second Woman, starring Shawn Yue and Shu Qi, which opens theatrically in Hong Kong this week.
