NEWS: ‘Young & Fabulous’ Screenings in Memory of Aloysius Pang
Encore Films will be re-releasing the local movie, Young & Fabulous, in cinemas from 29th January 2019, in memory of Aloysius Pang. Aloysius was the lead actor in Young & Fabulous, a local movie that was released in 2016. The movie grossed a total of S$1.3 million and was one of the Top 10 Asian Movies in Singapore in 2016. The movie was subsequently released in Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Said producer and director Ms Joyce Lee, “Aloysius is a dear friend, and the news of his passing was hard for me. We worked very well together for Young & Fabulous, and I treat him like my younger brother. I wanted to do something for him, and with his family’s blessings, we’ve decided to re-release Young & Fabulous on the big screens for Singaporeans who wished to pay tribute to his great work. All proceeds after third party costs (if any) for the screenings will go to Pang’s family. Aloysius’s wish was to excel in his acting profession and get more recognition for his work. I hope I can do my part to help him fulfil his wish. I am very appreciative of the venue sponsorship from our cinema partners, Golden Village Multiplex, Cathay Cineplexes, Shaw Theatres and WE Cinemas.”
Young & Fabulous is a coming-of-age story of a group of teenage friends—Royston (played by Aloysius Pang), Violet (Joyce Chu), and Hao Ren (Joshua Tan)—who strive against all challenges and obstacles to pursue their dreams. On their journey of self-discovery, they also learn the meaning of friendship, the different perspectives in parent-child and teacher-student relationships, and ultimately the need to have the courage to stand up for what they believe in. The film encompasses elements of the youths’ everyday jargon, lifestyle, and aspirations, and also covers the interesting issues in different relationships that can engage people of all ages everywhere.
The six locations for Young & Fabulous – In Memory of Aloysius Pang are Golden Village Plaza, Golden Village Tampines, Cathay Cineplex AMK Hub, Cathay Cineplex Parkway Parade, Shaw Theatres Waterway Point and WE Cinemas Clementi. Booking links will be available shortly on the cinemas’ official websites.
