Post screening Q&A with Sun Koh, Boo Jun Feng, Tania Sng & K. Rajagopal
7 years before Singapore’s most established filmmakers ode to SG50 in 7 Letters, there wasLUCKY7. A totally independent film movement inspired by the collaborative efforts of the Malaysian film community up north, LUCKY7 featured 7 Singaporean filmmakers playing a surrealist game of exquisite-corpse on film. Each filmmaker wrote a 10-12 minute screenplay and only showed the last minute of it to the next filmmaker, who attempts to continue the film to the end. The result is a mix-genre rollercoaster ride through some of the most interesting Singaporean film-minds of 2008. The filmmakers were Sun Koh, K Rajagopal, Boo Junfeng, Brian Gothong Tan, Chew Tze Chuan, Ho Tzu Nyen, and Tania Sng.
