From acclaimed directors, Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo, and legendary Executive Producer Martin Scorsese, comes a brilliant mix between a Hong Kong action film and a New York City crime thriller, portraying the never-before-told true story of “The Green Dragons.” This AAAFF Centerpiece Film will be the Southwest Premiere of the film.
In the vein of crime classics like “Mean Streets” and “Infernal Affairs,” “Revenge of the Green Dragons” follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survived the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining the Green Dragons Chinatown gang. The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. An ill-fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is. Harry Shum Jr and Ray Liotta round up the cast.
