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.
