Henry Golding’s ‘Monsoon’ Sells North American Rights to Strand Releasing (Exclusive)
Strand Releasing has acquired all North American rights to British-Cambodian filmmaker Hong Khaou’s “Monsoon,” a drama headlined by “Crazy Rich Asians” star Henry Golding and Parker Sawyers.

Sold by Protagonist Pictures, “Monsoon” had its world premiere at Karlovy Vary last year and stars Golding as Kit, a young British man of Vietnamese decent who returns to Saigon to scatter his mother’s ashes. Along the journey, Kit meets estranged family members, and falls for an American man Lewis (Sawyers), whose father fought in the Vietnam War.

Monsoon” marks Khaou’s second feature, following his critically acclaimed directorial debut “Lifting” with Ben Whishaw which was also distributed by Strand Releasing in the U.S.

“We’re so thrilled to be working with Protagonist Pictures again, and especially to follow up with Hong’s latest effort which is such a beautifully crafted and personal film for Hong,” said Marcus Hu, co-president of Strand Releasing.
