Bet you didn't see this, and it also flew under my radar until recently.
A debut film by American living in Singapore - Marc X Grigoroff - this film actually made its World Premiere at the 2008 Seattle International Film Festival in the middle of the year, and come October, it's set to open in cinemas here. It's quite interesting as well as it seemed on the surface to have reflected and put into the film the multi-racial, cultural and lingual aspects of our society here, but whether it comes together seamlessly as a narrative whole, remains to be seen.
This is what the synopsis reads:
Twelve-year-old Singaporean-Malay girl Salawati recently witnessed the death of her older brother. In the aftermath of his death, a group of loutish Indian couriers and a troubled Chinese family become possible suspects in the crime as the boy’s death raises questions of faith and forgiveness in this touching drama.
