|Black Scar Blues|
The film marks the first out of the barn for debut director Leroy Nguyen who stars alongside Edmond Shum and after years of making countless shortfilms online in the realms of action, martial arts, drama and comedy. That said, evolving Black Scar Blues into a viable feature film was no easy feat, a fact emphasized by both stars when I interviewed them. Thus, with the accolades they accrued in the film festival circuit because of this project among others, it's only right, as it is opportune, to see how it flourishes.
A young hard-fisted hoodlum returns to the town he escaped from in order to try to right the wrongs he’s committed. What ensues is a devastating spiral of violence and betrayal that will consume everyone that he has ever cared about, and those very few who have ever cared about him.
