Narrative Feature

China | 88 min | 2017

When video home entertainment enters the market in 90s Beijing, a former projectionist ropes his young son into starting their own pirate movie company, but easy money comes with its own price tag.

“King of Peking” is a comedic drama that explores father and son relationships, morality, and what it means to be an example to others.
