The next Terracotta Film Club at the Prince Charles Cinema is set to get the audience ready for the ‘SPOTLIGHT ON: THE PHILIPPINES’, the opening section of the upcoming Terracotta Far East Film Festival.
FOR Y’UR HEIGHT ONLY features the two-foot-nine Filipino James Bond and martial artist WENG WENG as Agent 00.
At the peak of his fame, WENG WENG, was the most famous Filipino celebrity of his generation and is known as the shortest man to ever be a lead in an action martial arts film.
Terracotta Film Club offers the chance to catch this action-packed piece of Filipino cult cinema for a special screening: FOR Y’UR HEIGHT ONLY will screen on Wednesday 21 May at 9pm at the Prince Charles Cinema, London.
