Ping Pong
(Pin Pon)

A surreal and highly entertaining film examining the interplay of friendship, loyalty, rivalry, and self-esteem in an arena measuring five feet by nine feet. A triumph for first-time director Fumihiko Sori, and a cult favourite among fans of Asian film, Ping Pong was a big hit in Asia upon its release, and its popularity has only grown since its release on DVD.

Director: Fumihiko Sori
