Who is Albert Woo? director Hunt Hoe

Irvine -- Hunt Hoe, who won last year's Best Director award at the Newport Beach Film Festival for the complex, sexual drama, Seducing Maarya, returns to the festival in a new film exploring the complexities of Asian male identities, gay and straight.

Who is Albert Woo?, a film Hoe made for the National Film Board of Canada, is really the Malaysian-born director's quest to understand who he himself is. The film also features Jackie Chan in some of the movie's most unexpected, and revealing scenes.

Hoe, now based in Montreal, is interviewed Tuesday afternoon on March 20, 2001 at 4 pm on Subversity on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County and web-cast on at the same time.

His film screens at the festival on Tuesday, April 3 at 2 p.m. at Edwards Island Cinemas (999 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach).

To chat with him during the interview, call (949) 824-5824. The festival runs from March 29 to April 5, 2001.
