Columbia TriStar revisits Green Dragon

Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is readying the film that scored high marks across the film festival circuit, yet barely made a whisper in its extremely limited theatrical run. Green Dragon now comes to DVD allowing a much wider audience to finally see this film.

When Tai arrives at Camp Pendleton in the United States, he is confronted by a camp filled with despair. Jim Lance is the Marine in charge of housing the refuges until sponsors can be found to help them assimilate into American life. Lance quickly commissions Tai, who speaks English, to translate for him.Along the way, Minh meets Addie, an American who volunteers as a cook at the camp. He immediately takes a liking to Minh as they share a common interest in drawings and Batman comic books. Without verbally understanding each other, they have an unusual bond through drawings and music, and the common loss of a mother. They paint a mural together, bridging culture and history, where another America is revealed, outside of the Sears-Roebuck catalogs and shopping malls, and a spirit of innocence is formed, beyond life and death.

Presented in fullscreen with audio in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Surround 2.0, the disc will contain an audio commentary by Timothy Linh Bui and Kramer Morgenthau, deleted scenes with optional director commentary, talent files, a behind-the-scenes featurettes and a photo gallery.

With a $27.96 price tag, the film will be available on September 10th.
