The Rocket to launch in the Us but China is a no-go

6 January 2014 7:04 PM, PST | | See recent news »

North American distributor Kino Lorber is showing plenty of faith in Kim Mordaunt.s The Rocket, which premieres in New York City on Friday in a roll-out which will encompass 24 cities through late February.

The Lao-set feature has been banned from cinemas in China but has been cleared to screen on Video-On-Demand platforms in that country.

Producer Sylvia Wilczynski of Red Lamp Films tells If the Chinese censors regarded the film.s depiction of developers razing a village to make way for a hydro-electric dam in neighbouring Laos as a .sensitive issue..

However the producer is delighted with Kino Lorber.s release plans, starting with New York.s IFC Centre and the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Centre. She.s praying the vicious cold snap which has hit parts of the Us including Gotham and hurt ticket sales, has abated by then.

The film is getting more playdates in North America »
