STEVE CHONG FINDS OUT 
THAT SUICIDE IS A BAD IDEA


DAY 2 – FRIDAY NOVEMBER 8, 2013 | 9:45 PM
Narrative | HDCAM | Colour | 2013 | 81 min | USA | English
 
Steve Chong sucks at life and has decided to end it. But before pulling the trigger, he calls up his three estranged friends and brings them out to a remote lake house for one final weekend of relaxation and intoxication. When John, Tom and Chris catch on to his suicidal intentions, they scramble to keep their friend alive without revealing that they have uncovered his plan. However, the guys have problems of their own, and when a pair of girls from Steve’s workplace mysteriously show up, chaos breaks loose and no one can predict what Steve has planned.

CHINK

DAY 3 – SATURDAY NOVEMBER 9, 2013 | 9:30 PM
Narrative | Blu-Ray | Colour | 2013 | 86 min | USA | English
 
The production team behind the popular sex comedy, The People I’ve Slept With (Closing Night - VAFF 2009), takes on a darker subject matter, bringing us the first Asian American serial killer horror. With its controversial and divisive title, CHINK shatters the model minority stereotype with its main character loathing his ethnic identity to the destructive extreme and idolizing Ted Bundy. The film stars Jason Tobin (Better Luck Tomorrow and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) as the disturbed Eddy Tsai, who dreams of becoming the greatest serial killer in history, Eugenia Yuan (Memoirs of a Geisha) as an intriguing new hire at his office, and Tzi Ma (Rush Hour) as Eddy’s smarmy boss.
