Hanging with Olivia Munn
This past Sunday at FIFTY24SF Gallery/Upper Playground in San Francisco, we celebrated the release of Dirty Hands, the documentary following the career of David Choe. Director Harry Kim, artist and the film’s star, David Choe, and a crew of friends, family, and fans showed up. What happened; street races, thumb wars, photos, signings, bloody marys, smiles, and happy moments.
Don’t think she will be there. But we will. So will David and Harry, signing DVDs and having a good time because Dirty Hands is available for sale now. Tits! So come on down, 2PM, this Sunday, July 17, to FIFTY24SF, for a signing and people watching.

Ultimately, the film unveils a explicit yet personal story of the trials of a succeeding talent, inspirational to any artist.
Originally, the “Dirty Hands” documentary premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival to multiple sold-out screenings and went on to win the Best Documentary award at the San Diego Asian Film Festival.
