NEW YORK — Independent film “Lumpia with a Vengeance” premieres this in New York at the Asian American International Film Festival.
The action/comedy film features a crime-fighting hero who fights criminals with a deep fried Filipino snack.
The film’s director and co-writer, Patricio Ginelsa, joined the PIX11 Morning News to talk about the film.
“Lumpia With a Vengeance” is a crowdfunded sequel (and part reboot) of Ginelsa’s 2003 homemade film “Lumpia,” which has gained a cult following over the years.
Ginelsa told us what it felt like to see the demand for the new film and get to create something honoring Filipino heritage.
