White Days by Lei Yuan Bin won second prize in Berlin!
White Days by Lei Yuan Bin won second prize at the Asian Hot Shots Berlin! The casts of White Days are Vel Ng and fellow 13LP filmmakers, Yeo Siew Hua (In the House of Straw) and Daniel Hui (One Day in June).
This year’s Asian Hot Shots Berlin has a focus on Singapore Cinema, was curated by Mathias Ortmann, who brought White Days to Asian Hot Shots Berlin and reviewed it on Sinema last year.
This is what he wrote when he saw White Days last year at the Singapore International Film Festival: “White Days is a quintessentially Singaporean movie. So much of the place is in its people talking to one another, especially where that talk is fragmented, filled with gaps and fuelled by reluctance”
“It should be very interesting to see how audiences abroad, total first-timers to the Singapore experience will react.”
