Bitter/Sweet in Hollywood's Feel Good Film Festival
The Hollywood-Thai romance Bitter/Sweet was to have made its Asian premiere at the aborted Phuket Film Festival, and while a Thailand screening has yet to occur, there's still something to feel good about.
Bitter/Sweet will screen in the 60-film line-up of the Feel Good Film Festival from August 7 to 9 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
An award winner at Houston's Worldfest, Bitter/Sweet was shot in Thailand last year. Produced by Urs T. Bruner and directed by John Karas, the romance stars Kip Pardue as an American coffee buyer who locks horns with a fiesty Thai woman (Art of the Devil's Mamee Nakprasit) on a coffee plantation in southern Thailand's Krabi province. James Brolin, Spencer Garrett and Akara Amartyakul are among the mixed cast of Hollywood and Thai players.
