Khoo Cannes do it … again!
And so the love affair between the prestigious Cannes Film Festival and Singapore’s Eric Khoo continues.
The celebrated auteur’s latest film, Tatsumi, will be premiering at the 64th Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard section in May.
Based on the life and short stories of Yoshihiro Tatsumi, the movie is Khoo’s animated homage to the Japanese godfather of alternative anime.
Joining an elite group which includes Dumbo (1947), Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence (2004), Waltz With Bashir (2008) and Up (2009), Tatsumi is Singapore’s first animated feature – and only the 13th in animated movie history – to be invited to the Cannes Official Selection. It will compete for the Prize Un Certain Regard in this year’s edition.
