7월 7일, 스미소니언 프리어, 새클러 갤러리 22주년을 맞아 필름 페스티벌이 열린다. 이번 필름 페스티벌은 스미소니언과 중국 경제 무역성이 공동 주최하여 오는 7월 14일부터 8월 6일까지 최근 1997년 작품 “Made in Hong Kong” 을 비롯한 홍콩에서 흥행한 영화를 미국인들에게 선보이는 기회를 갖게 된다. 첫번째 영화 상영에 앞선 시사회에서 “Mad World” 의 연출과 작가가 출연하여 직접 영화에 대한 간략한 설명과 함께 비하인드 스토리를 스토리 텔링으로 이끌어 줄 것이라고 스미소니언 프리어. 새클러 담당자는 전한다.
영화는 스미소니언 내셔널 뮤지엄 미국 역사박물관 : 워너 브라더스 영화관에서 열리며, 입장료는 무료다. First Come First Serve 로 먼저 가서 먼저 입장하는 사람에게 우선권이 있다. 주차장은 한정되어 있으니 메트로를 타거나 메트로 버스를 타면 좋을 것으로 보인다. 장소는 컨스티튜션 애비뉴 12가와 14 사이에 있는 스미소니언 미국 역사 박물관 이다.
한 여름, 더위를 식히고 미국의 심장에서 즐기는 홍콩 영화, 7.8월의 여름을 식히기에 충분하다.
