Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Six talented directors; six cross-cultural encounters.

A reunion in Bangkok between two young Chinese cousins; traditional food at a family gathering in Singapore; a young woman returning from China to her native Myanmar with her grandfather's burial clothes; a Singapore radio station succumbing to Chinese economic and cultural power; a night-time reflection on Malaysian colonisation; an apartment complex in Malaysia visited by a slow-moving Buddhist monk. There's a tone to suit every mood in this alternately wry and lyrical omnibus.
