Part of a night of Documentaries about Cult Film KINGS! With the Rudy “Daboy” Fernandez doc The Last Pinoy Action King!
This one starts at 10:00 pm, Thursday September 8!
HAIL TO THE KING: 60 YEARS OF DESTRUCTION is an independent crowd-funded documentary that celebrates the sixty-year legacy of the world’s greatest monster, Godzilla. In July of 2014, Kyle Yount, die-hard Godzilla fan and the host of the internet’s longest running podcast dedicated to the kaiju genre, launched the Kickstarter campaign in an attempt to fund the documentary. The modest goal of $8,000 was to take him to Tokyo to film Godzilla and kaiju-related events, locations and to interview cast, crew and fans of the Godzilla series about their passion and experiences with the King of the Monsters.
Cast: Akira Takarada, Yoshio Tsuchiya, Akira Kubo, Yukiko Kobayashi, Shinpei Hayashiya
