Apart from a work in progress industry screening in Wroclaw during the American Film Fest in 2017, there is very little info on Stephen Gurewitz’s Honkey Kong. A project that proposes renowned cinematographer Sean Price Williams being playful in front of the camera, and that takes place on the other side of the world, Hannah Gross and Alex Ross Perry also star in Gurewitz’s third feature film after Happy Birthday Rita (2010) and Marvin Seth and Stanley (2012).
