CAPE Presents HANG LOOSE At 28th LAAPFF

CAPE is proud to be the official Community Partner for HANG LOOSE at the 28th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (LAAPFF).

Directed by Ryan Kawamoto, HANG LOOSE follows newly-single Kevin (Kevin Wu, aka KevJumba) on his trip to Hawaii to attend his big sister’s wedding. Upon arriving in Honolulu, he goes out to town with his future brother-in-law Dante (Dante Basco) and his crazy groomsmen. The night quickly goes wrong in so many ways — from altercations in a Chinatown strip club, run-ins with armed gangsters, a drug deal gone bad, and the inevitable run-in with the local crime lord, played by Justin Chon (TWILIGHT; K-TOWN COWBOYS). HANGOVAH, brah? Nahhh, hang loose, brah!
