AJOOMMA 《花路阿朱妈》, the first-ever Singapore-Korea co-produced feature film, clinched the Best Film Award at the 2nd BaliMakarya Film Festival under the Southeast Asian Feature Competition! The BaliMakarya Film Festival ran from 16 – 21 October this year, in Bali, Indonesia. The 10-film competitive section also featured Memento Mori: Earth by Marcus Manh Cuong Vu, which also premiered in the New Currents competition at Busan and Malaysian Woo Ming Jin’s Stone Turtle and Thai filmmaker Sorayos Prapapan’s Arnold Is A Model Student, both of which premiered at Locarno.
AJOOMMA’s director He Shuming, who attended the festival between 17 to 19 October, shared his joy, “We had a great response from the audience in Balimakarya. I couldn’t stay too long for the festival because I had to fly back for the Singapore premiere and for the release of our film. This is the first award for our film AJOOMMA and I hope this is the beginning of more things to come! Most importantly, I hope Singapore audiences will come see our film at cinemas.”
AJOOMMA 《花路阿朱妈》 opens in Singapore cinemas from 27 October with sneak previews from 21 – 24 October. Produced by award-winning filmmaker Anthony Chen, the movie stars actors Hong Hui Fang, Kang Hyung-suk and Shane Pow. It received 4 nominations at the upcoming 59th Golden Horse Awards and is selected as Singapore’s Oscars entry in the Best International Feature Film category.
