Casting Fu Manchu Now Showing at CAN Festival 2021

Kyoko Takenaka

Casting Fu Manchu is currently showing as part of the CAN Festival 2021 [15th Feb - 30th Apr 2021]. Following the premiere screening these were some of the comments about the film,

"... a brilliant and thought-provoking concept ..."

"... poignant and beautiful ..."

"... a lockdown classic ..."

"... an intelligent well crafted piece of work which is like a skilled surgeon cutting out the cancerous tumour of the Yellow Peril ..."

There's an interview with me talking about the making of Casting Fu Manchu in Theatre Fullstop.
