Last year at the Singapore International Film Festival, I missed the screening the restored Mee Pok Man (thanks to Ride’s appearance at Neon Lights) and so I jumped at the chance to catch the restored film at The Projector on Friday, 8th April.
The Projector is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Eric Khoo’s Mee Pok Man this April with a few screenings of the iconic film along with his earlier short film Pain and a couple of talks and panels hosted by the Asian Film Archive.
Attending the SGIFF 2015 press conference, I was pleasantly surprised to come across many familiar faces and pleased as punch to discover that the Festival would feature a restored version of Eric Khoo’s Mee Pok Man (on its 20th anniversary) and a Singapore premiere of his latest opus, In The Room.
I have always wanted to me more involved in the indie film scene in Singapore and this event was deeply encouraging for me to keep at it. So expect some form of coverage here at Power of Pop.
In the meantime, check out what’s happening at SGIFF2015.
