Film Festival presents a rare 35mm print of this Shaw Brothers kaiju
PEKING MAN (1977):
Stories of a "ten stories tall" monster ape living in
the Himalayas reaches fortune hunters in Hong Kong. They travel to
India to capture it, but wild animals and quicksand dissuade all but
Johnny, an adventurer with a broken heart. He finds the monster and
discovers it's been raising a woman, Samantha, since she survived a
plane crash years before that killed her parents. In the idyllic jungle,
Johnny and Samantha fall in love, until Johnny asks her to convince the
giant ape to go to civilization. Once there, "Mighty Peking Man" is put
in chains, and it won't take long for his instincts to take over, and
mayhem to erupt in Hong Kong!
