Anthony Chen
cast:
Yann Yann Yeo, Tian Wen Chen

Set in Singapore during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, the film follows the drama of a middleclass family and the Filipino immigrant they hire as their live-in maid and nanny. “Chen is remarkably astute in his depiction of the class and racial tensions within such a household, his accessible style enabling the characters’ underlying decency and warmth to emerge unforced.” (Variety) Winner of the Caméra d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for Best First Feature, Chen’s intimate storytelling is that of a seasoned filmmaker. In Mandarin, Tagalog & English with English subtitles.
