Author And Director Andrew Leavold Brings THE SEARCH FOR WENG WENG Across North America

It was all the way back in 2007 that Australian director Andrew Leavold brought us The Search For Weng Weng, a so-strange-it-must-be-true documentary exploration of the diminutive Filipino cult film star Weng Weng. Standing less than three feet tall, Weng Weng starred in a string of film oddities - most notably a flagrant James Bond knock off titled For Your Height Only - much of which is chronicled in Leavold's film.

But as much as is in the film there's more to tell in the story of Weng Weng. So much more, in fact, that Leavold has now published a companion book that he is touring with along with an on screen companion - The Lost Films Of Weng Weng - that features edited down and subtitled footage from a trio of Weng Weng's films now seen for the first time outside of the Philippines. And he's bringing it all to a healthy selection of cities across North America! So if you want your taste, here's your chance:
