Another great reason to live in LA. if a film buff, the truly amazing special events, conversations and screenings. The Hammer presents twelve films with their directors and actors in tow through December and January in their Contenders Series. The series starts off with Bong Joon ho's Snow Piercer, it's a very pretentious film and Bong version's of the story added Asian people, because he's Asian.
