Go check out TAKE OUT this weekend in NY
If you have time for a flick this coming weekend my friend Charles Jang aka Charlito the Bandito will be one of the lead actors for his recent film- Take Out.
Here's the synopsis of the film:
Take Out is a day-in-the-life of Ming Ding (Charles Jang), an illegal Chinese immigrant working as a deliveryman for a Chinese take-out shop in New York City. Ming is behind with payments on his huge debt to the smugglers who brought him to the United States. The collectors have given him until the end of the day to deliver the money that is due. After borrowing most of the money from friends and relatives, Ming realizes that the remainder must come from the day's delivery tips. In order to do so, he must make more than double his average daily income.
In a social-realist style, the camera follows Ming on his deliveries throughout the upper Manhattan neighborhood where social and economic extremes exist side by side. Intercutting between Ming's deliveries and the daily routine of the restaurant, Take Out presents a harshly real look at the daily lives of illegal Chinese immigrants in New York City.
It's receiving \outstanding reviews from the critics (NYTimes, The New Yorker, Village Voice, New York Post and many more.
