FROM Gilm Kofman
Unmade in China John Horn, film writer for the LA Times and banterer for The Business, talks with filmmaker Gil Kofman about the trials and tribulations of making a film in China. Kofman was despondent after financing for his thriller fell through twice. Then he got a call that someone in China wanted to make it. Only they'd have to translate it into Mandarin -- a language Kofman didn't speak -- and shoot it in China, a country Kofman had never been to. What ensues was a series of disappointments, frustrations and culture clashes all caught on tape by Kofman's friend and compiled in the new documentary Unmade in China .
