A Hong Kong man who visited South Holland last month has taken a copy of home-grown action movie Dishonoured back to Asia with him as a memento.
The film, written by and starring Holbeach Film Company’s Stephan Genovese, was influenced by 80s and 90s action cinema, a genre that was forged in Hong Kong by directors such as John Woo influencing Hollywood’s output for those decades – and now South Holland’s.
Tim Pritchard (31) said of the film shot in Spalding, Crowland and Holbeach: “I really enjoyed watching it, especially as I’d spent some time around town and recognised places that I’d been to – like Polka Polish cafe in Holbeach [at the former String of Horses, a filming location].
“I wanted a memento of that, and so jumped at the chance to own a copy and show friends back home in Asia”
The film is available at select stores across South Holland and can also be ordered online at www.dishonouredmovie.co.uk
