We’re thrilled to announce this new addition to the SXSW Film Panels lineup:
Race, Politics, and Drugs: a Harold & Kumar Panel
Starting in 2004 with the sleeper hit, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, a different kind of studio comedy was born. Not only were the two leads refreshingly diverse but they were able to comment on social/racial issues while injecting laughs aplenty about stoners and road trips. It all goes up a notch with the highly-anticipated sequel, screening at this year’s SXSW. The cast and crew of these innovative comedies will sit together to discuss the ways in which they’ve made some very smart satire out of the most unlikely places. This panel, open only to SXSW Film, Gold, and Platinum registrants, will feature actors John Cho, Kal Penn, and Neil Patrick Harris as well as writers/directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. It will be moderated by journalist Robert Wilonsky, and occur on Saturday, March 8, at the Austin Convention Center.
